Falling rocks kill woman in Mount Fuji. How can similar incidents be avoided?; Maiko Eiraku; NHK

A woman struck by falling rocks near the top of Mount Fuji died on Monday. Anna Dubrovina, a 29-year-old woman from Russia, was killed while climbing with her husband. They were about 200 meters from the summit. While some climbers wear helmets, the vast majority of the over 200,000 people who go up Mount Fuji every year do not. Japanese officials warn that attempting the climb without proper equipment is extremely dangerous.
