"Two more sherpas arrived and for the next eight hours they all struggled to bring Mr Kinloch,28, down the mountain, administering drugs and oxygen. But they were now dangerously close to needing rescue themselves, and had to abandon him and struggled back into camp at 5.30am, exhausted and suffering from hypothermia and frostbite.Mr Kinloch's body is still in Mount Everest's "death zone" and may never be recovered. He is the 30th climber to die on the mountain in the past five years." [The Independent, June 3, 2010]
HE IS THE 30TH CLIMBER TO DIE ON THE MOUNTAIN IN THE PAST FIVE YEARS
, and people continue to do this? So that they can say/know that they have "conquered" the mountain? Words fail me, .... again.
