Since Thursday, four people have died while climbing Mount Everest, the world's tallest mountain.
One was Maria Strydom, a finance lecturer at Australia's Monash University.
She and her husband, Robert Gropel, were on a quest to climb the tallest peaks on each of the seven continents and, in the process, prove their vegan diets didn't affect their climbing.
