Pics of Dead Climbers on Mt. Everest ... Why Don't They Bring Them Home?

Recommended Posts

People have been discussing why they don't bring these people home. Climbers are taking pictures of these lost climbers, and some say if you can stop and take a picture, why can't you help bring them home? In one case, a barley alive climber had his picture taken, who was still breathing, and softly asked, "help me" .. but the climbers left him there to die. Another female climber, who fell and was injured, asked not to be left there to die, but they did just that. Some haunting images, and perhaps some of you can help answer why these lost climbers are left where they died.

How would you propose they bring them home?

From the article:

"This is because the same hazards that made their journey unsuccessful make it impossible to reach them or, simply, it is too difficult for other climbers to return them to base without putting themselves in significant danger. "
