  • In The Past Week 11 People Have Died In Mount Everest's 'Death Zone'

    Mount Everest is the highest mountain in the world with a summit at 29,029 feet. According to Business Insider, climbers and scientists have a special name for the highest part of Everest: "The Death Zone." In the past week alone, 11 climbers have died in the "Death Zone." In the Death Zone, oxygen is so limited that the body's cells start to die. Climbers' judgment becomes impaired, and they can experience heart attacks, strokes, or severe altitude sickness. Because of recent overcrowding on Everest, climbers are waiting in longer-than-normal lines to reach the summit. While waiting their turn, they are dying of exhaustion.
