Second American dies on Mount Everest

Second American dies on Mount Everest

A Colorado lawyer died Monday while descending from the summit of Mount Everest, the second American in as many weeks to die during the peak climbing season. Christopher Kulish, 62, reached the 29,035-foot peak, but passed away suddenly at the South Col, approximately 3,000 feet below the summit. The specific cause of death was not immediately known.

It's a strange compulsion to need to do something that hundreds of people have already done with a very high probability of pointlessly cutting your life short in a horrificly sudden way but to each their own.
