In his moment of crisis, Luttrell prays to God for mercy. He sends out a distress signal, and then attempts to search for water. Meanwhile, responding to a distress signal put out by Mikey shortly before his death, the military sends a helicopter full of SEALs to assist in the rescue. However, the Taliban shoot down the helicopter, killing everyone onboard.
Luttrell crawls up the side of the mountain, at several points falling back down and further injuring himself. However, he manages to climb up the mountain and find a waterfall.
The three men mean him no harm, however. They are Pashtuns—an ethnic group that lives primarily in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Luttrell explains that the Pashtuns have an ancient custom, lokhay, that requires them to take care of people in need, even if it means risking their own life.
However, their view is partially blocked.
