Top mountain climber dies

After managing to conquer Acon­cagua (6,962 meters) this year, Ro­manian mountain climber Dragos Veleanu lost his life during an expedition in Romania’s Carpathian Mountains, near Lake Balea, editie.ro informs. “He started playing with some icicles. A giant slab of ice collapsed on top of him. When we reached him he was already dead,” mountain climber Cornel Roman stated. The icicle that killed the mountain climber had a length of two meters and a diameter of approximately one meter at its base. Mountain rescuers were immediately called but they were unable to do anything for Dragos.
