Mount Everest deaths blamed on rush for summit
"On Everest. It's fascinating. I you know, I must have seen a documentary about Mount Everest as a kid. I think I actually saw it at the museum of science and industry over. They have that big movie theater, and the big theater, that's shaped like has the circular am I thinking of the right the right. I think you are. Yeah, I forget what it's called, but seen a couple of movies there as a kid, and so just a few basic stats by the end of the statistics that they have are only up to the latest. I've seen through two thousand ten I'm trying to get more updated stats, but thousands of people have now climbed but the rate of people dying. Is about five and every one hundred which is a, that's how people over the the length of a year, or at least the, the length of a climbing season. Well, they say for everyone the overall rate from the beginning of when this started now. Okay, they say that about five out of every one hundred people that try to go to the top amount Evers parish, which is a lot. And if you think that it's getting safer. It's not. And so we've been talking about this traffic jam which of all places on the top amount ever since now where I had expected, but it's in this quote unquote, death zone and. It's this traffic jam specifically, so four P. This is updated story as of today. Four more people died on Friday. So just yesterday and two of them, they know for sure are because of this traffic jam and apparently so Nepal issued a record number of firm. It's this year. Can you guess how much cost to get one of these permits? Roger badesch, just any guest individual. Yeah. I'd say about two thousand dollars. Jess any guesses. How much does it cost to get a to get helped up to the top of Mount Everest? Ooh. Seven thousand eleven thousand bucks. Wow. That's the that's how much it costs to get up to the top of Everest got to get a permit, and they say that these permits bringing a, a real good amount of money for the impoverished country of Nepal, which is great. I'm glad that they're getting some money into honestly, these, these sherpas who do this these climbers. I mean, they deserve it if their shepherding. Yep. They're, they're taking on the risk as well. But Gary Raji kind of alluded to this. It's a very small window a suitable weather before the short season ends and the weather hasn't been great during this short season. So these bottlenecks, and we're talking hundreds of climbers waiting to achieve for many, although perhaps, not for Paris, the ultimate in mountaineering. So the latest four deaths on Friday taking the toll from the deadly week on the overcrowded peak to eight in to Indians and in Nepali, and on the Nepal side in Australia on the way down Michigan the top you get up there. And then on the way down you die. Yeah, I think a lot of people have this image of light people falling shortly that has contributed to some of the deaths. But it's, it's the weakened state. Your body is in from the deprivation of oxygen. Sure. And it's not a it's not like you go like you've been saying you're waiting in line. So that lack of oxygen just it's not a quick thing. You're sitting there in it. Yes. And you have one the part the story I saw earlier in the week was. Somebody who had been this was like a life goal of theirs, or they had had some kind of disease, and they recover and this was something they'd been training for and waiting for and saving up for her. And, and he got to the top passed out and fell. Oh my gosh. And that was it. You know, Don. That's the one I saw. Yeah. We've also seen some of the guides pass away as well. Yeah. American was life was claimed Donald Lind, cash, fifty five years old collapsed to the summit, he was taking photographs and you're saying another one died descending after reaching the top already organization. Organizers say they're trying to figure out a way to do this, but imagine you pay eleven thousand dollars. You get all the way up to see for me, which I'm of the belief that none of that is worth, of course, dying. And I think if you were to ask these people man to man woman to woman they would say the same thing. But once you're up there. What do you do? You can't turn around. So you're you're stuck in this game. No escalator. Yeah. What do you do? Also just stuck in this battle in your brain. That's like you've come this far. Yeah. Exactly. And you see the top like here's the thing. If you get twenty nine thousand and twenty feet instead of twenty nine thousand twenty nine you've got to get those last nine feet. You. Yeah. I mean like I can see why someone would risk their life to get to that point. And wait those last thirty feet for me. I'm like looking at it. And this photo showing this line of hundreds of people, I mean, you're almost there for me, I would turn around take a selfie say, click made it close enough, close enough, and turn around and get the heck out of there. You know what I would've done? It was kind of, like I when I went to the theater with Bridget, the other night is like so from the seat, I took picture of the stage and I, I wrote how close are we this close? So I would have turned around with the group behind me going, that's higher than me. And. Say and take a picture with, you know, a selfie with them behind me say, look at how close I am. And then just walked down is what you've done. I'm done. Twenty eight thousand nine hundred ninety five feet. Exactly out of twenty nine thousand twenty nine right. You've done it. And if I've stood in line now for ten minutes, I'm out of there, you know, move side, come down excuse me. Come down by. Yeah. Part of the issues at the summit such a narrow thing, too, is that they have one rope. So the people going up our have share a rope with the people going down. And that cannot be an easy manure to go through. And again, we're not trying to make light of the situation but it's just it's, it's, it's incredible what people will
