    WELLINGTON: Two New Zealand climbers hoping to become the first father-and-son team to scale the world’s second-highest mountain have died in the attempt, their family said on Tuesday after the pair went missing in an avalanche on K2. Martin Schmidt, 53, and his 25-year-old son Denali Schmidt were attempting to scale the 8,611-meter (28,251-feet) peak in northern Pakistan when the avalanche hit on Friday night.
