K2 is the second-highest mountain in the world with a stunning altitude of 8,611 meters. It is a dream for many mountaineers to attempt this Himalayan peak and during this endeavor, they are supported by many others like their guides and porters. A recent K2 summit by Norwegian mountaineer Kristin Harila came under a lot of criticism as during her climb she appeared to step over the body of Muhammad Hassan, an injured Pakistani porter who later died.
As per a report by Washington Post, a video was shared widely on social media platforms where the hiker can be seen stepping over the body of Muhammad Hassan. The video was released by other mountaineers and has ignited a debate on social media over the treatment of support staff by the mountaineers sponsored heavily by governments or private companies.
