A tragedy on the top of the world
This story is about a group of people who climbed the Mount Everest. They were at the top of the mountain. then, they started their descented by the south peak. The sky was clear at that moment. One of the climbers, Krakauer, did not have too much oxygen. His oxygen tank was running low. They chose to climb down from the South peak to get oxygen. Harris, who left the summit a little bit after Krakauer asked him to share some oxygen with him. Harris had mistakenly cranked the valve open to full flow drainign the tank. There was 250 feet below a new oxygen tank for me. Some climbers from other groups were behind schedule. A snow
Standing of top of the world, one foot in China and the other in Nepal. Krakauer and Harris started their descent from the South peak. Some of the climbers snapped some pictures and unfurling flags.
A blanket of cluds was covered the smaller mountains around the Mt. Everest. After an hour, the sky was clear and they started their descent. Krakauer did not have too many oxygen. Harris that was behind him asked for sharing some oxygen becuse his tank was running low. Krakauer shared some with him. But Harris mistakenly cranked the valve open to full flow, drainign the tank. Krakauer felt unconscioulyand his sigt was blurry.
Finally they went 250 feet down where there was a new oxygen tank waiting for them. Many other climbers that were behind schedule pass them on their summit. Harris and Krakauer continued their descent. The other climbers were caught by a snow storm. Many were dead. Impaired judgment seems to have been a sigtnificant factor in their deaths.
