Mount Everest Disaster

An SAS man has been killed by an Avalanche on Mount Everest.

A 14 man strong team from the Elite Army Regiment, led by John "Brummie" Stokes and Michael Lane, died when tons of snow swept over and flattened their Camp at 20,150ft, up the World's highest peak. Tony Swierzy died instantly, whilst three other climbers were injured - John "Brummie" Stokes broke his neck, Andy Baxter's Collar Bone was broken, whilst Graham Cook is suffering from severe Frost bite.

The avalanche swept the teams tents more than a hundred yards down the mountain side. The Team had attempted to climb the 29,198ft Mountain by the Northern slope from Tibet.

An expert stated " It is a bad climb down from where they were, especially with casualties, it would be a very slow dangerous descent".
