Mount Everest’s melting glaciers uncover bodies of dead climbers
According to a new report, due to global warming melting glaciers on Mount Everest are revealing more and more bodies of dead climbers. Almost 300 lives have been lost to the frozen peaks of Everest since the first attempt to conquer the mountain in 1921. Recent expeditions to recover some bodies have sparked heated debate in the about the morality of risking more lives to retrieve bodies from one of the most unforgiving places on Earth.
A Utah man who'd just had a once in a lifetime experience by reaching the peak of Mount Everest reportedly died near the summit Wednesday when he fell amid a "traffic jam" of climbers.
Donald Cash, 55, was taking photos after he reached the top of the mountain in Nepal when he fell, AFP reported. He was brought to an area near the Hillary Step, a well-known rock and the last — and most difficult — obstacle before climbers reach the pinnacle, but later died.
Donald Cash, 55, reportedly died on Wednesday after scaling Mount Everest.
Cash was one of more than 200 people who were trekking up the mountain to the 29,035-foot peak on Wednesday, as hikers were trying to make the most of the nice weather. There are only a few windows of good weather each May that allows climbers the best chance of reaching the summit.
