Terrible thing to have happen but as long as Everest is a playground for the wealthy so to speak where they pay sherpas just to drag them along and anyone with enough money can pay their way to the top this kind of stuff is going to keep happening. If turn around time is 11 that means turn around at 11. Not push it til 2 because you're almost there.

The 1996 climbing season on Everest (which included the doomed Rob Hall and Scott Fischer expeditions) still holds the record for the most fatalities in a single season: 16.
