4 dead bodies and 12 tons of trash removed from Mount Everest

The Nepalese government has removed just over 24,000 pounds of trash from Mount Everest. During the clean up of the worlds highest mountain, cleaners also uncover four dead bodies. Ghimire said four dead bodies were found by the cleaners in melting snow and were taken to base camp before flown to a hospital in the capital for identification, AP reports. None of the bodies have been identified and it is not known when they died. According to AP, officials said the mission has been 'successful" but some of the trash still covered by snow will need to be collected once temperatures rise. Additionally, 300 climbers have died on Everest since 1953, but officials are unsure of how many bodies are still on the mountain.
