25 June 2011 Six French mountaineers were killed in an avalanche on Pic de Neige Cordier in the French Alps. Their bodies were found the next day by a British hiker who took the same ascent route. The victims included two men, three women and a 16-year old boy. Police reported that weather was good at the time of their ascent.
7 Nov 2010 That remaining in the so-called Death Zone on high mountains is dangerous and causes serious health problems, has long been known; altitude sickness in the form of nausea, headaches and insomnia affect up to three quarters of all climbers who ascend too quickly. Much less frequently, though, the dreaded mountaineering illnesses of high altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) and high altitude cerebral edema (HACE) occur, but their symptoms disappear again on the descent. It has now been discovered, however, that permanent damage may arise from a prolonged stay in thin air due to shrinkage of the brain (Source).
