Tragedy hits French 'Everest 50'
April 10, 2003 - 30 year old Arnaud Saulnier from the French 'Everest 50' expedition (http://www.glenatpresse.com/expeditions/everest50/) 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.
