 One hundred and fifty people passed by without seeing the victim freeze to death alive! Why do mountaineers on Mount Qomolangma see death and not save it?


The controversy has arisen. Is it an immoral and shameful act that more than 150 people died before they were saved?

In fact, this is not the first time outside the world to question the problem of death is not saved in mountaineering. As early as 2006, Mark Inglis, a famous legless climber in New Zealand and the first person to climb Mount Everest with a prosthetic limb, exposed himself on the way to climb Mount Everest. On that day, 40 people in his group did not save a British climber from death. Eventually, the man was frozen to death alive.

So why do so many climbers have to bear the moral pressure to save those in distress?

First of all, the environment of Mount Everest is extremely harsh. Every climber carries oxygen, food and drinking water which are accurately calculated and quantified. Helping others may mean that he is in danger, and the whole team of rescuers may be overwhelmed. Maybe its a matter of replacing other peoples lives with ones own. Of course, not everyone is willing to do it.

Secondly, at high altitudes, anoxia, severe cold, fatigue and various unpredictable weather and environmental changes lead to rescue of a victim, often need to use more than 10 times the number of people, some climbers do not want to rescue, is really unable to rescue.

Thirdly, because of the great difficulty of climbing Mount Everest, the mortality rate is about 5%. All climbers are ready to go or not to return before climbing. Preparations for each climb often vary from months to years, so most people believe that everyone should be responsible for themselves, and cold-blooded behavior has become a common practice. So climbing Mount Qomolangma is not as simple as climbing a wild mountain. It challenges the limits of human beings. It is a hero to save people, and there is no need to blame them for not saving them. Source of this article: Netease Sports Responsible Editor: Cao Liemen_NS1806
