'In 2009 Australian mountaineer Lincoln Hall died at the age of 56. Hall is best known for surviving a night at more than 28,000 feet on Mount Everest in 2006. He'd become disoriented near the summit, and couldn't move - to the peril of his sherpas. They left him for dead and Hall's death was announced to his family. But the next day, a group of climbers found Hall sitting up, jacket unzipped, mumbling, badly frostbitten - but alive. He later wrote a book, "Dead Lucky: Life After Death on Mount Everest."Hall died middle aged from a human-caused malady from urban life - mesothelioma, attributed to childhood exposure to asbestos.'
