We recently found out that one Malaysian has lost his life while climbing Mount Everest.

Kedah Malaysian Civil Defence Force (APM) director Lt Col Awang Askandar Ampuan Yaacub passed away on 19 May when he was just 20 minutes away from the summit.

Now, BERNAMA has reported that Muhammad Hawari Hashim, a person with a disability (PWD) is feared to have gone missing after he conquered the world’s highest peak.

Expedition leader Azim Afif Ishak said the search operation is still ongoing and that Muhammad Hawari, 33, who has a hearing impairment went missing when they were descending to Camp 3.

The last he heard from Hawari was when he was at Camp 4 and it’s been about 24 hours since he has gone missing.

Another climber, Ayu Wanirah Naharuddin, 30, said that she last saw Muhammad Hawari with a sherpa resting at Camp 4. However, after the sherpa woke up, he discovered that Muhammad Hawari was not in the tent or anywhere in Camp 4.

They chartered a helicopter and sherpas were employed to look for him on the routes commonly used by climbers.

Another climber, Shrinivas Sainis Dattatraya from Singapore had gone missing as well when attempting to scale Mount Everest.

According to CNA, he had reached the summit on 19 May but during his descent, he apparently suffered from frostbite and altitude sickness which separated him from his group at about 8,000m. A search party is also ongoing for Shrinivas.

 

We hope that the climbers will be found soon enough. Thoughts and prayers go out to their family.
