“We really tried. We had the best team in the world.”
The Matthews family is frantically searching for his corpse.
One body recovered
At the oxford union, The Old Etonian said: “We had a team of, like, ten Nepalese guys and some other fantastic Western climbers.”
”We did find one body, though. It wasn’t Michael; rather, it was a climber from Nepal.”
Bear Grylls statement
“The story has not come out yet, so I am not going to talk too much about it, but it was a really special moment for [Michael’s] family,” Running Wild With Bear Grylls, said.
“It is the reality of high-altitude mountaineering, as people pay the ultimate price up there.”
Bear Grylls has lured major names like Hollywood actresses Kate Winslet and Ben Stiller to appear on his show.
The ‘Emotional’ Project
Spencer Matthews started filming a documentary about his late brother’s final days before he died while descending Mount Everest in March of this year.
The 33-year-old creator of CleanCo was described as being “hugely passionate” about starting the adventure that would follow in his sibling’s footsteps.
The ’emotional’ project, which will involve Spencer visiting his brother’s final resting place, was claimed to have the support of his parents and his brother James, who is married to Pippa Middleton.
In 1999, Michael Matthews, at 22 years old, stood in front of Mount Everest’s summit alongside his friend Jamie Everest.
The Sun reports
According to The Sun, Spencer was determined to bring his brother’s body home.
At the time, a source stated: “Spencer’s documentary about Michael and his final days is at the very early stages and Disney+ have shown an interest.”
“Though the Matthews family were never able to recover Michael’s body, there is a guide who believes they know his final resting place.”
“It is a hugely emotional project and will be a very upsetting journey for many reasons, but Spencer is hugely passionate about embarking on it if he can make it work.”
Experienced Mounteer Mr.Matthew
Mr.Matthew was a skilled climber who had conquered the Pyrenees, the Swiss Alps, and Kilimanjaro before attempting his tragic Everest journey, which cost about $22,000 and required the assistance of a climbing organization.
After taking the lead, the remainder of the climbing pack stated that Michael started to struggle near the end and that a storm with 100 mph winds struck as they descended, causing Michael to become separated from the group.
Mounteer Mr. Matthews, who had already scaled Kilimanjaro, passed away in 1999 while attempting to become the youngest Brit to ascend Everest. His death on Mount Everest made him the 162nd.
Despite reaching the top of the world’s tallest peak, he lost contact with his companions while descending the mountain.
The family of Mr. Matthews has never been able to properly comprehend what transpired to him, and his body has never been found.
The family’s affluent father, David Matthews, has consistently maintained that the mountain guides’ incompetence caused his death.
He filed a private lawsuit against three company employees, claiming that the guides failed to keep Michael in their sights during the ascent, his oxygen supply was unreliable, and the safety briefings were insufficient.
The judge ruled that there was no proof of carelessness and dismissed the case.
We send Mr.Matthew’s friends and family our sincere condolences.
