Tremor claims Google executive’s life in Nepal


Kathmandu: A California man who is known as an “inventor” and “adventurer” and was a longtime member of Google’s privacy team died while climbing Mt. Everest after the powerful and tragic earthquake in Nepal triggered an avalanche.
Dan Fredinburg, a Google X project manager, died on Saturday after suffering a “major head injury”.
“All our love and thanks to those who shared this life with our hilarious strong willed man, he was and is everything to us. Thank you.” His sister Megan wrote.
His sister posted a photo on Instagram alongside the death notice. In it, Fredinburg appears to be scaling a snowy mountain with a wide grin.
Fredinburg was with three other Google employees at Everest. They are safe.
