Hopefully This Would Be Obvious: Don't Climb A Mountain In Your Underwear

MARY LOUISE KELLY, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Mary Louise Kelly. File this under things that seemed like a good idea at the time. Nineteen-year-old Nathan French decided to climb the highest peak in Wales to raise money for charity, and he decided to do so wearing only his underwear, his Superman underwear. Hypothermia set in.
