Over 200 Dead Bodies On Mount Everest
The area above 26,000ft is called “The Death Zone” due to the atmospheric pressure. The air is so thin that recovering the dead bodies is impossible so they are left where they died.
There have been many cases where people had to leave behind some people that were still alive due to low oxygen. Sergei and Francys Arsentiev met that fate. Two climbers heard Francys screaming for help on the side of a steep cliff. She was seperated from her husband. The climbers had to leave her behind or they would have died themselves.
Some were lucky enough to die in their sleep, while others suffered injuries from falls and died slowly from hypothermia.

“There are infinite numbers between 0 and 1. There’s .1 and .12 and .112 and an infinite collection of others. Of course, there is a bigger infinite set of numbers between 0 and 2, or between 0 and a million. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities. A writer we used to like taught us that. There are days, many of them, when I resent the size of my unbounded set. I want more numbers than I’m likely to get, and God, I want more numbers for Augustus Waters than he got. But, Gus, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I’m grateful.”
