Climber dies on Baruntse
09:35 a.m. EDT May 13, 2003
Nepal's Ministry of Tourism confirms a British climber died in a fall on Baruntse in the afternoon of May 10th. Michael Turner fell after a fixed rope snapped at 6100m.

This is the second death in the Himalayas this season and the first to happen to a climber on a mountain. The first death of the season was a member of a French expedition who died in Everest's base camp from severe AMS shortly after arriving.
