Climber Plunges 600 Meters on New Zealand’s Deadly Mountain and Lives to Tell the Tale

New Zealand’s Deadly Mountain-In an inconceivable twist of fate, a rambler fell a whopping 600 measures( about 2,000 bases) from Mount Taranaki in New Zealand, one of the country’s most dangerous mountains, and astonishingly, he only suffered minor injuries when he landed on the snow below. The New Zealand police participated this story on Monday( September 11) and credited the rambler’s survival to the spring rainfall, which had softened the snow and gentled his fall.

According to the police statement, the rambler, who hasn’t been named, was with a group of rovers trying to reach the snowy peak of Mount Taranaki on Saturday( Sep 9). Unfortunately, he lost his footing and slipped down the mountain. One of his companions went down to find him, and the police were advised around noon.
