Henry Worsley,  an explorer who attempted to cross the Antarctic on his own died just 30 miles short of the finish line.  Henry Worsley is reported to have suffered an organ failure. The plan was to cross the continent “unassisted and unsupported” – with no supply drops or help from dogs or any other source.

He had began his solo journey 71 days before. The 55 year old army officer was doing this as a fund raiser which had already grossed over 100,000 pounds for the Endeavour Fund which supports injured service men and women. The news was made public by his wife, she had also thanked ALE and the medical staff for all the efforts to revive him.

Among the people who have paid their tributes are the Duke of Cambridge and football sensation David Beckham. Worsley speaking to the BBC before he embarked on the endeavour had hinted he could end up losing just less than 13 Kgs during the scheduled journey. The Endeavour fund for whom he was raising money was had conveyed their devastation on hearing the news of Worsley.
