The mortal remains of 54-year-old Puwei Liu was airlifted to Teaching Hospital at Maharajgunj in Kathmandu where a post mortem examination will be conducted on the dead body.

The American climber had fallen to death in Camp IV (above 7,900 m) in the 8,848.86 meters mountain while he was descending upon his successful summit of Sagarmatha, according to Information Officer Rishiraj Dhakal at the District Police Office, Solukhumbu.

The rescue team had been able to rescue the dead body of the climber from the highest mountain in the world today only due to the adverse weather in recent days.

The dead body was airlifted today itself from Lukla to Kathmandu as the weather conditions improved, informed Dhakal.

This spring season, three fatalities have been recorded in Sagarmatha during the expedition while American climber and Swiss national Abdul Warich being the foreign climbers while Tashi Sherpa, 27, a climbing Sherpa from Nepal had succumbed to a fall into a deep crevasse. RSS
