(CNN) – An avalanche on Mount Everest killed at least 12 sherpa guides, and seriously wounded three, four remain missing.
It is already the deadliest day ever on the famed peak. The victims of the disaster are the native Nepalese people who have been guiding climbers to the summit since the days of Edmund Hillary, the first explorer to make it up, and back down alive.
More than 330 foreign climbers have been given permission to climb this year, along with an estimated 400 sherpas to guide them home safely. One can only hope they all come back.
