Title A majority of fatal accidents during winter hiking is due to a sudden death caused by cardiac arrest
Created By Knps Date 12.23.2015

9 out of 14 fatal accidents that occurred in national parks over the past three years were due to a sudden death caused by cardiac arrest.

As temperature drops, blood pressure goes up and the heart needs to be supplied with more blood.

This could cause a overloading of the heart, causing cardiac arrest.

Therefore, you need to prepare extra winter clothes to maintain body temperature if you plan to hike mountains in winter.

It is better to climb a mountain together than alone.

You need to have emergency foods that do not freeze well such as chocolate and safety equipment.
