4 Mount Everest climbers die

A British climber and his guide, a Kenyan banker, and a Nepalese climber are dead, and one other guide remained missing Friday following multiple incidents this week including an ice collapse on Mount Everest, the world's tallest mountain.

Daniel Paul Paterson, 40, and his guide, Pastenji Sherpa, 23, disappeared when an ice collapse took place Tuesday as the pair the descended the mountain, 8K Expeditions, the company that put the expedition together, posted on Instagram. The duo, who reached the summit before their deaths, was part of a 15-member team on the same climb with the climb company based in Kathmandu, Nepal.

“Eyewitnesses reported the incident took place between Summit Ridge and South Summit and some climbers were swept away in Kangshung Face,” the adventure company wrote. "We remember and honor their enduring spirits and extend our deepest condolences to their grieving families."
