Malaysian climber, Mohamad Shahrulnizam Ahmad Nazari, 25 died from Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) on the way up to the Everest base camp at about 5pm Nepal time, Monday.

He was a part of the Perbadanan Putrajaya Sports, Recreation and Welfare Club’s expedition to Kalapathar and the Everest base camp along with ten men and three women.

It was also reported that another climber also suffers AMS and is critically ill.

The climbers are now camping out in Labuche at the height of 4,100 metres above sea level.

A Malaysian embassy spokesman in Kathmandu, Nepal said that none of the members nor the body of the victim could be flown out of the mountain to the hospital in Kathmandu because of a bad weather.

Perbadanan Putrajaya corporate communications senior deputy director Zaharah Salamat said:

“Around 7.15pm, we were informed of his passing, and until now we cannot ascertain as to when the body can be flown out to Kathmandu. Following the tragic incident, all climbers had canceled their plans to head to the Everest base camp and are currently staying in Labuche.”

Al-Fatihah to Allahyarham Mohamad Shahrulnizam Ahmad Nazari.
