In 2013, 60 Minutes traveled five and a half thousand meters above sea level, at Everest Base Camp, where mountaineers launch their quest for the summit. It’s a deadly pursuit and more people than ever are risking their lives to scale Everest. But even the most experienced climbers can develop deadly altitude sickness and they end up in the world’s highest hospital. They call it “Everest ER”, a tiny tent where volunteer doctors try to rebuild broken bodies, and shattered dreams.
