Canadian mountaineer falls to death on Pakistan’s K2

ISLAMABAD: A Canadian national who was attempting to climb Pakistan’s K2 mountain has fallen to his death, officials said Saturday.
The 53-year-old was between camps 2 and 3 on the notoriously challenging 8,611 meters (28,251 feet) peak when the accident happened, an official of the Gilgit-Baltistan Tourism department told AFP.
His death was confirmed by Sakhawat Hussain of Summit Karakoram, the tour company that organized his trip.
Hussain said that he had received notification from the base camp that the Canadian “had fallen to his death and his body has been moved to advance base camp,” adding that he was in contact with family members.
