Tragedy hits French 'Everest 50'
April 10, 2003 - 30 year old Arnaud Saulnier from the French 'Everest 50' expedition was found dead yesterday morning, April 9th, inside his base camp tent.  The team tried unsuccessfully for two hours to resuscitate him. This morning a helicopter came and the body was airlifted - his friend Martin is leaving the expedition and will accompany Arnaud's body back to France.  

Arnaud was the sound technician in the team's film crew. There will be a wake in memory of Arnaud in base camp.
