I do hear about deaths, but I wonder how many go un mentioned. It's hard if not impossible to put a tally on that. I saw a dude die at another mountain a couple years back, that made the news, although briefly. This particular one, not a single peep out of anyone, I've looked and asked many people. Maybe they did end up reviving the guy, if so, I'm impressed as the odds are very likely in the favor of the Grim Reaper - even more so if was caused by trauma.
The lack of news got me stirring the pot a bit with how deaths must put a dent in the local economy, I'm sure the effects to the economy are short lived but after last season where many of the mountains and locals were really struggling to stay alive, I can see how they'd like to avoid any bad press. Again, this is me letting my thoughts run dark and trying to stir the pot.
