Everest Summiter Mohammad Oraz death/Iranian expedition


Everest Summiter Mohammad Oraz has died while climbing in Pakistan.

Update 9/2003 More details: The Iranian Climber (Mohammad Oraz) was hit by an avalanche between camp 4 and summit at an altitude of 7850 metes. There were four climbers were heading towards the summit and all of sudden avalanche hit them. Two got lost, they showed up after seven hours later, from this all were tied in two different ropes. While two climbers were hit down and they were injured. These two Oraz and Mugbil. Mugbil was slightly injured and is still not in a good condition, for him it was difficult to walk easily. [Mugbil, we believe is actually Moqbbel Honarpajouh, has been discharged from the hospital.] Mohammad Oraz, who passed away few days back was badly injured. It took them about four days to bring him to Advance Base Camp, in a very bad weather. His fellow climbers made emergency stretcher with sleeping mattresses and fixed themselves with ropes and dragged him back. They showed us movie of this rescue, it was hard to watch.

Mr. Agha Jaani president of Iranian Mountaineering Federation especially came to Pakistan to take care of his climber. And he spent more than 10 days taking care of his injured climber. Essar

Very very sad News...

"last night at 10:45 our good friend Mohammad Oraz died while he was in comma. At 10:00 I received a phone call from hospital telling about the serious condition of Oraiz and that we should be at the hospital soon as possible. I called Ashraf and Naiknam who were with the other climbers of both expeditions Iranian GB-I and our Peace and Friendship. Mohammad was a very nice human being and was very cooperative at during the whole expedition and at the same time he was a very fine climber. We feel very sad about the death of such nice man."
