When someone dies, the body will immediately start to decompose, starting with the internal organs and depending on the conditions, an untreated dead body will become unrecognisable, within ten days. This is a natural process and is as nature intended. However there are cases, where people have died in extremely cold places, meaning their bodies have been frozen and perfectly preserved for many years. Here we look at five such instances, where peoples bodies have been frozen in time. As a warning, this video will contain some graphic imagery. Captain Scott. In June 1910 renowned arctic explorer, Captain Robert Falcon Scott and his team left Cardiff, Wales, on the Whaling ship Terra Nova in preparation to become the first British explorers to reach the south pole. However when they reached Antarctica, it became apparent, that the group were ill-equipped to deal with the harsh conditions and the ponies and sledges they were using, were unable to cope and were abandoned. The expedition carried on with just dogs but eventually, the dog teams also turned back and by January 1912 only five of the original group remained Scott, Wilson, Oates, Bowers and Evans. The five pushed on through appalling conditions and finally reached the pole, only to find a Norwegian flag flying and the realisation that a party lead by Roald Amundsen had beaten them to it. Deflated and exhausted, they started the 1500 kilometre journey back but by mid February, Evans was dead and just a month later, Oates, who was suffering from severe frostbite and knowing he was holding his companions back, walked out of his tent into a blizzard and was never seen again. The remaining three, also eventually succumbed to the freezing conditions and died of starvation and exposure at the end of March 1912. Their frozen bodies were found in their tent eight months later and Scott’s diary revealed the extent of their torment. Heartbreakingly, they were located just 20 kilometres from a pre-arranged supply point. It was decided that their bodies should be left as they were found and a mound of snow was built around and over the tent in a makeshift icy burial site. A cross made of skis was placed on top, and a member of the search party left a note in a metal cylinder at the site in which he wrote their obituaries. The three were then left in their snow covered ice tomb where they remain to this day. However in the years since and with the changing climate the tomb has been slowly moving. This is because it was erected on top of a 360ft section of ice so as the surface accumulates more ice and the bottom of the shelf melts and refreezes, it slowly moves. With the passage of time, it’s now estimated the three bodies have travelled, around 39 miles and are encased in over 55ft of snow. In fact, no-one seems to know exactly where they are now but glaciologists believe the moving bodies are still preserved intact and within the next 250 years the remains of Scott, Bowers and Wilson will reach the age of the Ross Ice Shelf where it meets McMurdo Sound in the Ross Sea. By then, it’s estimated that they’ll be encased in more than 325ft of ice and by the time they reach the sea, they will emerge inside a huge iceberg, bobbing around in the ocean. Marceline and Francine Dumoulin On August the 15th 1942 Marceline and Francine Dumoulin ventured out to feed their cattle on mountain pasture in the Swiss Alps. they never returned and were never seen again, leaving behind seven children. That is until July 2017 when an employee of a local cable car company was doing routine maintenance in the Swiss Alps when he saw a foot protruding from the ice. Upon closer inspection, he saw two other boots and some personal artefacts as well as the blackened remains of a man and a woman. Security and the police were notified and after recovering the bodies still encased in a block of ice, it was confirmed by DNA that they were the remains of Marceline and Francine Dumoulin. It’s thought the couple fell into a crevasse 75 years earlier and as the glaciers started to melt, their well preserved bodies were revealed. Only two of their children were still alive and their youngest daughter who was just four years old when her parents disappeared said she and her siblings had spent their whole lives looking for them. The couple were finally laid to rest in south west Switzerland and their funeral was attended by their two surviving children, their grandchildren and great grandchildren that they had never met. The pair had finally been released from their icy grave. The mummified bodies of World War One soldiers. Global warming has revealed some unexpected and gruesome discoveries as glaciers in the Italian alps are slowly melting to reveal the mummified frozen corpses of soldiers killed during World War One. Since 2004 whenever their is a hot summer more and more bodies are being exposed in the location where countless men were shot, starved or froze to death during the great war. The last two soldiers to be found were lying side by side on the Presena glacier. It’s thought they were just teenagers who were buried in a frozen crevasse by fellow fighters after being shot in the head in 1918. One of the young soldiers, still had a spoon tucked in his uniform for eating his rations. These two young men, thought to be between sixteen and eighteen went to fight for their country and were not seen again for nearly 100 years. The fight between the Italian forces and those of the Austro Hungarian empire was long and much of it was in the mountainous Italian Alps where a blizzard could send temperatures dropping to minus 30 degrees Celsius. However it’s not just bodies that are being unearthed from the battleground. Clothes, shoes and intact letters from soldiers are also being discovered. Sadly, sometimes bodies are found that have been completely looted with all remnants of them being soldiers removed to be sold online to unsuspecting collectors. In fact, some people are going up to the mountain with the sole intent of finding such things to sell on the internet. Alex Lowe and David Bridges. On the 27th of April 2016 the bodies of acclaimed mountain climber Alex Lowe and cameraman David Bridges were discovered 16 years after their disappearance in the Himalayan mountains. The pair were buried alive in an avalanche in Tibets Shishapangma on the 5th of October 1999 along with their companion Conrad Anchor. All three were part of the nine member American Shishapangma ski expedition Anchor, who was only partially buried sustained broken ribs and a head gash but was able to walk to safety. However despite almost two days searching, Lowe and Bridges were not found. The two bodies were finally found encased in blue ice and their identity was confirmed by Anchor from the description of their clothing and backpacks. The bodies were not touched out of respect and left on the mountain. The finds brought closure to the families who planned to make a pilgrimage to the area to recover the bodies. George Mallory In 1924, George Mallory and his partner Andrew Irvine attempted what at the time seemed impossible. To be the first humans ever, to reach the summit of Mount Everest the tallest mountain in the world. Whether they made it or not is open to debate as they didn’t survive to tell the tale. Their last confirmed sighting was 800ft from the summit after that, their fate remained unknown for 75 years. At the time, their disappearances made world headlines and the only evidence found was an empty oxygen bottle and an ice axe belonging to Irvine. But in 1999, a Nova BBC sponsored expedition set out to try and find the pair and within a matter of hours they discovered a frozen body lying face down, dressed in wool and fur. At first they believed it was the remains of Andrew Irvine but the nametags on the body’s clothing indicated it was the body of George Mallory. The corpse was perfectly preserved and although no photos of his face were taken, it was reported, it was undamaged with a solemn expression. It also show how George died when a broken climbing rope was tied around his waist suggesting that Irvine and Mallory were tied together when one of them fell. An ice axe was also found close to his body leading researchers to believe that George had stopped his own fall but a puncture wound found on his forehead indicated that he was killed in the process, possibly by his ice axe hitting him sadly, Irvines body was never located. So that’s five, remarkable cases where human bodies have been found frozen in time. Thanks for watching and I’ll see you in the next video.

    It’s offensive that people go out climbing specially to look for bodies to loot and that they have no problem stealing from dead soldiers. These young men bravely fought for their country and deserve respect in death. It makes me so angry that looters steal from their corpses. I don’t like wishing ill on others but I hope karma catches up with those bastards.

    My country, Canada , has documented the Franklin expedition in the north artic. Tragic loss of life. One can view the Canada Parks website :  https://www.pc.gc.ca/en/culture/franklin Another expedition that was an incredible journey to and from the South Pole was with Shackleton. He made the trip 3 times. He was a great leader and left most of his men to get help and then went back to get them.

    I think, Mallory didn't reach the Mount Everest summit, otherwise he would've made a note about it. – I don't expect him to write a diary in these conditions of course, but he would've made a short note I guess (both of them would've done that).

    They're the very first ones who have ever tried to reach the Mt Everest summit and I'm sure they're aware how unique their whole expedition had been and they also had to have known, that they could get separated at any given unexpected occurrence.

    This had been completely unknown territory after all; with unknown conditions.
    They're two grown men and even if they'd underestimated the mountain and overestimated their own abilities somehow; I'm almost certain they made two separate journals just in case…
    I appreciate their honesty not to pretend they'd reached the top!
    R.I.P. both of them.
