Everest - The death Zone

In the spring of 1997 climbers agreed to undergo physiological and psychometric testing from Base Camp to the summit of Mount Everest to explore the effects of altitude on the body and mind. Filmmaker David Breashears, expedition leader Ed Viesturs, deputy expedition leader Pete Athans, David Carter, Guy Cotter, Veikka Gustafsson, Tashi Tenzing, and Jangbu Sherp reached the summit of Mount Everest on May 23, 1997. The descent becomes life-threatening when Carter almost suffocates from an upper respiratory infection severely worsened by the effects of altitude.
