Full Description

The biggest single killer in the mountains is accidental hypothermia - exposure to cold. What makes it such a stupid way to die is detailed in this dramatised case study of a group of five people out for a weekend tramp. One of them doesn't come back and the film gives the reasons why he died, and what could have been done to prevent his unnecessary death.
