Sir Edmund Hillary died at the age of 88Sir Edmund Hillary,88, was rushed to Auckland City Hospital(New Zealand) after a heart attack but passed away this morning at 9 am. He was the great adventurer and humanitarian who set the world's first ever record together with Nepalese Mr. Tenzing Norgay Sherpa to scale Earth's Highest Peak Mt. Everest(Sagarmatha) in 1953.
He ended the debate of who reached the summit first by revealing things in his book 'View from the Summit' where he'd written things which he publicly denied to say.
"I continued cutting a line of steps upwards," he wrote.
Nepal and Nepalese Sherpas will be always and always grateful towards Sir Edmund Hillary's contributions for whatever he had done good for them, for bringing Rays of hope to poor local people,and for everything he's done with virtuous intentions to uplift the social,economic and education standard of Sherpas. He opened the gate for other westerners. He'll be always remembered and I'm sure, Sherpas and Nepalese are in big grief to learn about this tragic incident, demise of great New Zealander hero Sir Edmund Hillary. May his soul Rest in Peace.
