A 34 year old woman wanted to prove that ‘vegans’ are not malnourished and can do anything. And to prove, she was climbing Mount Everest. Unfortunately, she fell ill and died.
It has been reported that the 34 year old Australian Lecturer, Maria Strydom, was climbing with her husband Robert Gropel. She suffered strong altitude sickness and later died.
It is said that due to lack of Oxygen in the air, she died.
It was the seventh death in a week, while climbing Mount Everest.
Her last words were “By climbing the seven summits we want to prove that vegans can do anything and more”.
