Lincoln Hall, Mountain Climber; Author, Dead Lucky
Come hear the astounding and inspirational story of Australian mountain climber Hall's rescue near the summit of Mount Everest, where he had been left for dead by the other members of his expedition. In fact, Hall was pronounced dead, after collapsing from altitude sickness. The next morning, however, an American guide, climbing with two clients and a sherpa, was startled to find Hall, sitting cross-legged on the summit ridge. Featured in the Emmy-nominated Dateline NBC documentary "Miracle on Mount Everest," Hall presents his account of the miraculous night atop Everest and the days and nights that led up to and followed his expedition.
