Climbing Mt. Everest has become more accessible over the two decades, but deaths can and still do occur on a somewhat regular basis. Unfortunately, many bodies simply can’t be recovered because doing so would put other people at risk.
The video below shows GoPro footage from a recent climber who passed a dead body hanging down below. Pay attention to the red circle that highlights the body throughout the video.
Our thoughts and condolences are with the friends and family of the deceased.
