Fatal Altitude Tragedy on K2 (Full Documentary)

Fatal Altitude Tragedy on K2 (Full Documentary)
The 2008 K2 disaster occurred on 1 August 2008, when eleven mountaineers from international expeditions died on K2, the second-highest mountain on Earth. Three others were seriously injured. The series of deaths, over the course of the Friday ascent and Saturday descent, was the worst single accident in the history of K2 mountaineering. Some of the specific details remain uncertain, with different plausible scenarios for timing and actions by different climbers when reported later in eyewitness accounts from survivors or from radio communications of climbers who died later (sometimes minutes later) in the course of events on K2 that day.
