Crews continue digging through rubble looking for victims Monday after more than 3,600 people have been confirmed dead and thousands injured in the massive earthquake that hammered Nepal over the weekend. It seems like whatever is going on in the world, Hoosiers are there. As was the case in this tragedy. A group of Hoosier climbers are now safe following that deadly quake. The 7.8 magnitude tremor on Saturday triggered an avalanche on Mount Everest that plowed into the base camp below. The Hoosier group is being led by David Carter, the owner of Indianapolis business, Carter Lee Lumber.  At least four of the climbers in his group are also from here in Indiana. The first helicopters headed to that Mount Everest base camp this morning to rescue more than 200 stranded climbers. Carter’s group was among them. The U.S. State Department says three Americans, including an executive with Google, Dan Fredinburg, are among the thousands dead.
