Briton dies during Greenland ice trek
« on: May 01, 2013, 10:57:00 AM »
According to the BBC:

Quote
Philip Goodeve-Docker, of Ealing, west London, was on the 400-mile expedition with two friends, when they were caught in a severe snowstorm on Sunday.

Mr Goodeve-Docker and his team mates, Andy Norman and Roan Hackney, were in the early stages of their trek when a snowstorm engulfed them, blowing away their tent.

The three were picked up by local authorities, but Mr Goodeve-Docker died. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) said the other men were recovering in hospital.
