Now that we’ve all been provided the opportunity for a good, long think about the zombie apocalypse, perhaps its time to consider some of the overlooked skills that would come in handy and seek out some new mentors. And while most of us wouldn’t have the stomach to get hone some parkour skills, rolling a bike through an urban obstacle course could one day save your life. Because there’s only so far that sitting on your front porch with a shotgun and a jug of water will take you.

Canadian climber Shriya Shah-Klorfine’s body removed from Mount Everest by helicopter

The body of Shriya Shah-Klorfine, a Canadian woman who died while returning from the summit of Mount Everest, has been brought off the world’s tallest mountain.

A spokesman from Utmost Adventure Trekking says Shah-Klorfine’s body has been taken via helicopter from Mount Everest to her family in the Nepalese capital Kathmandu.

Ganesh Thakuri says a team of climbers managed to bring the Toronto woman’s remains down from an area more than 8,000 metres above sea level to a camp within helicopter rescue range on Monday, but bad weather prevented the body from being flown off the peak right away.

Shah-Klorfine was among four climbers who died while trying to scale Mount Everest on May 19.

They died under what’s being described as overcrowded conditions in the mountain’s so-called death zone in the final stretch of the climb.

The 33-year-old had previously stated that climbing Everest was a long-held dream.
