DEAD LUCKY: Life After Death on Mount Everest
DEAD LUCKY, Lincoln Hall
by Lincoln Hall

Dead Lucky: Life After Death on Mount Everest Lincoln likes to say that on the evening of May 25, 2006, he died on Everest. Indeed, he attempted to climb the mountain during a deadly season—11 other climbers died on the mountain that year, and Hall in fact was pronounced dead after collapsing from altitude sickness. Two Sherpas spent hours trying to revive him, but as darkness descended, the word came via radio from expedition leader that the Sherpas should stop their effort to keep him alive and climb down in order to save themselves. The news of Hall's death traveled rapidly from mountaineering websites to news media around the World and was heard by his family in Australia. Early next morning, however, an American guide climbing with two paying clients and a Sherpa was startle to find sitting cross-legged on a sharp crest of the summit ridge. In this page-turning account of survival against all odds, Hall describes the days and nights that led up to and followed this extraordinary experience.
