The biggest single killer in the mountains is accidental hypothermia - exposure to cold. This dramatised case study of five people going for a weekend tramp details why it is such a stupid way to die when one of the party suffers severe exposure. This program provides the reasons why he died and what could have prevented his unnecessary death.
