New Zealand: Prime minister's climbing guide dies in outing

The guide who took New Zealand's prime minister, Helen Clark, and friends on a climbing trip died of an apparent heart attack during the outing. Police and emergency services said Friday that Clark and other members of the party tried to revive the guide, Gottlieb Braun-Elwert, who also was a friend of Clark, but were unable to do so. The group was on holiday in a remote alpine valley in the Southern Alps, a mountain range on the South Island of New Zealand. Clark and members of the party, including two Cabinet ministers, spent more than two hours trying to revive Braun-Elwert after the climbing party had returned to their hut, police said.
