Google Executive Killed Climbing Everest In Avalanche

An avalanche caused by the Nepal quake has killed Google executive Dan Fredinburg who was Head Of Privacy at Google X. Fredinburg died after he sustained major head trauma when his mountain climbing group was blindsided by an avalanche that was the result of a powerful 7.8 magnitude earthquake in Nepal measured on the Richter scale.

Google privacy director Lawrence You said Fredinburg was climbing with three other Google company employees. It was reported that all other 3 Google employes were in good condition after the avalanche.

Fredinburg was documenting his Mount Everest climb on social media, posting several images of his trek through Nepal and at base camp to his Instagram account before Saturday’s powerful quake hit, killing at least 17 other climbers and many more in and surrounding the country’s capital.
