While making the announcement, his sister said on a social networking site, “It is with the greatest sorrow that we report the death of one of our Everest team members, Daniel Fredinburg. Two other team members have non-life threatening injuries, as a result of the avalanche that struck base camp during the earthquake and its aftershocks. They are being looked after in base camp. All Sherpas and other team members are uninjured and are safe in base camp or in Gorak Shep, a nearby cluster of tea houses and lodges…Our thoughts and prayers go out to Dan’s family and friends whilst we pray too for all those who have lost their lives in one of the greatest tragedies ever to hit this Himalayan nation”.

His friends and acquaintances are all showering praise on him. Well-known actress Sophia Bush, who has appeared in photos with Fredinburg said that he was “one-of-a-kind” in an Instagram post. “A dancing robot who liked to ride dinosaurs and chase the sun and envision a better future for the world. His brain knew how to build it…His heart was constantly evolving to push himself to make it so”, said she.
