Mt. Fuji accident

Can you see the snow smoke around the south side of Mt. Fuji?

Former F1 racer Ukyo Katayama went to Gotemba area of Mt. Fuji yesterday to train for next week's Antarctica adventure. He brought two of his staff members. They were blasted by a gust of icy wind while sleeping in each tent. Ukyo found his staffs freezing outside and tried to warm them.... but finally he decided to descend alone for a help. (His interview)
Later he confessed to the police that they had seemed dead already when he left.
