Third death on Everest in four days

  • 24/05/2016

Another climber has died on Mt Everest, the third in four days.

The latest death was an Indian man who succumbed to altitude sickness as Sherpa guides were helping him descend.

Two other Indian climbers who were with the man are missing in the so-called "death zone" near the summit.

An Australian man whose wife died at the weekend has been flown to the Nepal's capital Kathmandu, where he's in a critical condition with altitude sickness.
