KATHMANDU, Nepal — A 35-year-old Dutch man suffering from high-altitude sickness died on his way down from Mount Everest's summit in the first death confirmed this year on the world's highest mountain, an expedition organizer said Saturday. There were unconfirmed media reports that an Australian climber had also died.
The Dutch man, Eric Arnold, died near the South Col on Friday night, said Pasang Phurba of the Seven Summit Treks agency in Kathmandu.
