  Multiple Deaths on Everest


A Korean climber has died descending from the Summit of Everest from the North side. 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.

Other Korean climbers and their Sherpa who had been attempting to save the life of the Korean climber who died, and are now unaccounted for. It is unclear if the Sherpas are accounted for.

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.

Dr. Nils 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.
