With a Little Help of My Heart

A team of climbers, including 80-year-old Japanese mountaineer Yuichiro Miura, stand on the summit of Mount Everest. Miura, who has had four heart operations, reached the top of Mount Everest on Thursday, becoming the oldest person to conquer the world’s highest mountain. He took the standard southeast ridge route pioneered by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay 60 years ago, reaching the top of the 8,848 metre (29,028 feet) mountain at roughly 9:00 a.m. local time (0300 GMT). He was accompanied by three other Japanese climbers, including his son, and six Nepali sherpas. (REUTERS/Kyodo)
