cho oyo update October 5

Sunday 5th October, 2008. 1600hrs AWST

It is with great regret that we confirm that the Field Touring Alpine team on Cho Oyu in Tibet has sufferred a fatality. Canadian team member Guy Leveille, whom was being assisted down from a high camp, fell at some point and has died as a result of his injuries. Communication with Cho Oyu BC is very unreliable, but we expect to be able to update the situation in a few hours with further information. Our deepest sympathies are extended to the family and friends and work associates of Guy Leveille. Two further FTA climbers have descended to Camp 2 and are on the way down to BC. Our current information indicates all other team members are accounted for and are safe.

Kind regards,

Dave Hancock
