Imagine someone swinging by a rope as they’re mountain climbing. Will anyone help? More and more people are climbing Mt. Everest so, the risk involved and increasing death tolls are very dangerous. And the helicopters are very expensive, almost $2 million. It’s dangerous for the helicopters to go up to the height of Everest or even just really high because if there is more than one person, it would have to go back and forth because it can one person. People do not have the right to rescue services when they put themselves at risk because we cannot afford it. The first reason people do not have the right to rescue services when they put themselves at risk is because of the chances of more people dying. The article “Why Everest?” suggests that if you’re going to climb any mountain, make sure you have very good experience. As stated Guy Moreau, “There have been over 250 deaths on the mountain.” This shows that people are climbing high without experience. In addition, it demonstrates that more rescuers are being put in danger. Those who disagree think helping people is good; this argument is wrong because climbers need more experience. Therefore, lack of experience is the first reason people do not have the right to rescue services. The second reason people do not have the right to rescue services when they put themselves at risk is helicopter rescues …show more content…
This topic is relevant in today’s society because the price for climbers having fun might be for those climbers and rescuers losing their lives. If there is an accident or someone gets hurt because of a crime, society should give rescue services. But if someone is doing something that is obviously dangerous and they don’t have the proper training, it is not up to society to help them. So the next time someone is trying to climb Mt. Everest, they should look out for the green

Natural disasters may lead to many ethical challenges that are different from normal medical practices. Disasters can vary when comparing to their time, place and extent. Therefore, ethical questions may not always have such simple solutions. Ethical values and principles in every aspect of health-care are very important. Reviewing legal and organizational regulations, developing health-care related guidelines, and disaster recovery plans, establishing on-call committees as well as an adequate in-service training of health-care workers for ethical capability are of the most important of steps. It is only by making efforts before disasters, that ethical challenges can be minimized in disaster responses.
In ‘The Cost of Survival”, the author proposes that adventures who willing put themselves in danger should be responsible for the cost of their rescue. The author states in paragraph 3 there are several examples of reckless behavior that cost taxpayers thousands of dollars, man hours, and resources. In paragraph 5 an interview with an idividual with the Ca Air National Guard says “You can’t put a price on saving a life”. The counter claim goes agaisnt what the author is saying.
Furthermore, people who cause their own downfalls should be forced to pay for the cost of their own rescues because it's often on the case of they were too over confident and they underestimated the wilderness and all of its life threatening capabilities. Such as in “Too Build a Fire” by Jack London, the main character embarks on an expedition to go scope out the upcoming group for him and his group. Beforehand one of the leaders of the tribes who lives in this area year round
In order to continue climbing Everest, many aspects of climbing need to be improved before more people endanger their lives to try and reach the roof of the world. The guides have some areas that need the most reform. During the ascension of Everest the guides made a plethora mistakes that seemed insignificant but only aided in disaster. The guides first mistake is allowing “any bloody idiot [with enough determination] up” Everest (Krakauer 153). By allowing “any bloody idiot” with no climbing experience to try and climb the most challenging mountain in the world, the guides are almost inviting trouble. Having inexperienced climbers decreases the trust a climbing team has in one another, causing an individual approach to climbing the mountain and more reliance on the guides. While this approach appears fine, this fault is seen in addition to another in Scott Fischer’s expedition Mountain Madness. Due to the carefree manner in which the expedition was run, “clients [moved] up and down the mountain independently during the acclimation period, [Fischer] had to make a number of hurried, unplanned excursions between Base Camp and the upper camps when several clients experienced problems and needed to be escorted down,” (154). Two problems present in the Mountain Madness expedition were seen before the summit push: the allowance of inexperienced climbers and an unplanned climbing regime. A third problem that aided disaster was the difference in opinion in regards to the responsibilities of a guide on Everest. One guide “went down alone many hours ahead of the clients” and went “without supplemental oxygen” (318). These three major issues: allowing anyone up the mountain, not having a plan to climb Everest and differences in opinion. All contributed to the disaster on Everest in
Do people have the right to rescue services when they put themselves at risk? Mountain climbing is an activity of climbing mountains. For helicopter services, each cost about $2 million apiece and the helicopter could only take one climber. The air is very thin on the higher level of the mountain, climbers may have faced bad weather. Members of climber are increasing in the climbing season, many of them are in the death zone that there are traffic jams. People do not have the right to rescue services when they put themselves in a risky because people may die, and bad environment.
Why should park rangers put themselves at risk to save those who choose to climb the mountain aware of the risk? The rangers could die up there trying to save another person’s life, which is very heroic but why should he save him. There could be another incident in the park where someone was not doing anything risky but nature struck. Mountain climbers shouldn’t be able to demand rescue services on the mountain.

“Don't be afraid to have a reality check. Taking risks is OK, but you must be realistic.” Joy Mangano. This proves that although risk-taking can be accepted, you must be experienced in the risk that you’re taking in order to be safe. My first source, Helicopter Rescues Increasing on Everest is transcribed from Robert Siegel’s radio show, and is a nonfiction radio interview whose purpose is to inform readers. Another source I analyzed is “Why Everest?” The article was authored by Guy Moreau and is a nonfiction article that is meant to inform readers. The third source I researched is Ranger Killed During Rescue of Climbers on Mount Rainier and is a nonfiction newspaper article meant to inform readers. The author of the article is The Seattle Times. People do not have the right to rescue services when they put themselves at risk because it puts more people at risk, it is cost-heavy, and because they choose to risk their lives.
Did you know that over two-hundred thirty deaths have happened on Mount Everest and that rescue services have only successfully removed thirty bodies? Those people died because they were unprepared by not having enough oxygen or they didn’t plan accordingly. Being unprepared, not being physically fit, and putting other people at risk are three reasons why I think that Rescue Services should not be allowed for people who put themselves at risk.
In all three article, “Helicopter Rescues Increasing on Everest”, “Why Everest?”, and “Ranger Killed During Rescue of Climbers on Mount Rainier” all have different points of view regarding the issue of emergency rescues of mountain climbers.
Do you think climbers have the right to call rescue services to come save them? I think they do because they are climbing the mountains for the adventure and it’s their choice. The three reasons why people should have rescue services is that everyone has the right to call 911, people has the right to call for help, and the lives that could be saved by doing so.
Can you save other people’s lives when you are in danger or close to death? I would say “No” most of the time because my life is the most important thing in the universe at least for me. This is a quite difficult and controversial question, but I assume that the majority of people would say no as well. I don’t understand why the climbers take risks that they can die.
And they got one climber off, and they crashed attempting to rescue the second man” (Helicopter Rescues Increasing on Everest 7). It is a rescuer’s job to know the risks for saving a climber but if the climber is a professional, they shouldn’t be easily be making mistakes. When there are rescuers who come pick you up fast when you can’t complete the climb, it is like having a safety net behind you. But where is the safety net behind the rescuers? There isn’t one, once they make a mistake, there won’t be someone to save them, so there shouldn’t be rescuers saving climbers when they are risking their own lives but also the
