The Northwest Arkansas News reports that a boy touched off a massive 100 person and helicopter search on Mount Magazine after he told a construction worker near the summit on a two-radio that his dad was hurt and he needed help. He could not identify where he was but said he saw something white which authorities thought was a tower or inn near the south side of the mountain. He wouldn't give his name and the boy was never located. The search was called off after authorities heard him telling a girl about the exploits.

Australian newspapers have had several articles about Marc David Freeman who died after falling 50 metres into a crevasse on Mount Aspiring in New Zealand. The area known as "The Ramp" on the Bonar was the site last year of an accident where two of three climbers who fell died. The Ramp is the most popular way of climbing the 3,027-metre Mount Aspiring. Other articles noted that Marc David Freeman was just concluding a round the world expedition when the accident occurred.

The Irish Examiner report authorities fear that two men have perished on Ireland’s Carrantuohill. A man in his 40’s fell several hundred feet on Beenkeragh Ridge to his death on the MacGillycuddy Reeks. Authorities have also called off the search for a 22-year-old Swedish man, Olas Jansen after a week. Weather conditions were described as atrocious, with very high winds and rain. The Jansen search involved more than 180 climbers and walkers from clubs north of the border, a Coastguard helicopter, Civil Defence, gardaí and seven sniffer dogs. The team expressed cause for concern about the large numbers of people that climb Carrantuohill during the festive season, especially on St Stephen’s Day.

KSL TV reports two experienced were stuck on a 1,500 foot cliff for 4 days in Zion National Park. Rescue efforts were thwarted by bad weather. The climbers were hungry and cold but did not need hospitalization.

It, and the other story about the Reeks, worked on the second try. Maybe it was just one of those glitches.

The UPI reports that Eduard Silva died while descending Aconcaqua apparently from pulmonary edema – about 600 feet below the summit. At least nine people have died while climbing Aconcagua since 2001.
