Whatever it is, it doesn't look contagious as the people assisting him were not wearing any protective clothing. It does make you wonder what's exactly wrong with him though.

He has probably just broken a bone or had a stroke that prevents him from staying there to recover and requires hospital treatment which cannot be given on Antartica.
Doesn't seem particularly exciting to me, really.

Anyone know what the box the guy in front is carrying? It appears to be hooked up to the patient, so I am guessing it is some type of vitals monitor?

Why is it "odd"?
Is it SOP to release those things to the world?

In the US we have laws that regulate what can be said about a patient.....Maybe it is that simple. But I am sure some crazy disease trapped in the ice is more probable.
The United States Antarctic Program has assisted in the evacuation from Antarctica of injured Australian expeditioner Dwayne Rooke of Devonport, Tasmania.
An LC-130 Hercules military aircraft, assigned to the 13th Air Expeditionary Group, landed on a temporary runway that had been prepared at Australia's Davis station. The sea-ice runway, which is 3000 metres long on ice 1.8 metres thick, was prepared by station personnel over the past week.
Mr Rooke was evacuated in a 10-hour flight to hospital in Hobart, Tasmania. A combined US and Australian medical team was on board to assist in the evacuation. Mr Rooke's condition is described as serious but stable.
Mr Rooke suffered multiple fractures when he came off a quad bike on Monday 20 October while on a field trip at Trajer Ridge, around 25 kilometres from Davis station where he had spent almost the past 12 months as the station's chef.

Thing about tradespeople is that if they cannot work anymore the job stalls and stops unless you replace them. The ship grabs him, goes back to homeland, drops him off to get better, grabs the next guy in line and goes back to drop him or her off to complete the job. It's not fishy at all.

It's really time for the U.S government to come clean. According to wiki, up to 5% of Americans have admitted to being abducted. Either we have to assume that there are a lot of crazy people in the U.S, or there is really something to this.
How come you don't hear any of this from other countries(if you do hear of an abduction in other countries, it's
probably by the "rogue Nordics")?
Also, does anyone remember that story about women being pregnant without having sex? The reason I'm mentioning this is because the Greys have the technology to erase your memory(but it's not perfect which is why most people can recall bits and pieces of an abduction). If you add the two stories together, you can kind of get an idea what happened. You can say that the U.S government has literally sold its soul to the devil.

just a trailer.. But think about what kind of bacteria or viruses could be hiding there in ice...
