Three Korean climbers have died on Everest. One descending from the Summit of Everest from the North
side. Another attached to the ropes, probably searching for his friends, and a
third also in the rescue operation.
A Japanese woman has also died descending from the North side of
Everest. Shoto Ota was with the
Adventure Guides QOMOLANGMA EXPEDITION 2004.
After the summit she lost
consciousness coming down and
died. She was 63.
A Bulgarian climber is now missing on the North side. The
climber was last seen some 50 meters beneath the peak while descending on
Thursday. He had radio problems, so hopefully just a radio problem.
On the South side of
Everest, a small team of Gustavo Lisi (Argentina) and
Nils Antezana (Bolivia) attempted the Summit with 2
Sherpas. Some of the members summited, but Dr. Nils Antezana got into
trouble on the way down. The guide returned from the Summit but then needed to
be helped down by the Pemb Sherpa
from the Irish expedition. The 2 Sherpas returned late from the Summit,
but are safe in camp 4.
Antezana is still believed to be up on Everest. His family asks for a plea of
help from whoever can. "THERE MUST BE A SEARCH PARTY SENT OUT FOR HIM!!!!"
We ask you to join us in prayer for these
families in this time of need.
