CLINICAL AUTOPSY AT 7,400M. WHAT HAPPENED TO IÑAKI OCHOA DE OLZA?
ZIGOR MADARIA, Cardiologist at Urduliz Hospital and IMQ
Thursday December 12 – 19:30 Base Camp Ensanche 11
Free entrance until full capacity is reached
Zigor Madaria was fascinated after reading Los 14 de Iñaki, a book which details the frightening circumstances behind the attempt to rescue the alpinist at Annapurna. After reading it for a second time, the book triggered Madaria’s clinical instinct and he started working on different hypothesis about Iñaki’s tragic ending. He died from lung oedema after spending four days on bed rest. What happened in May 2008, on that ridge at a 7,400-metre height? Could all those tragic events stem from an ictus?
