Sophia Bush and Dan Fredinburg at the Do Something Awards in 2013
Sophia Bush's ex-boyfriend -- 33-year-old Google executive Dan Fredinburg -- was one of those killed in the 7.8 earthquake-triggered avalanche on Mt. Everest on Friday. He was one of at least 18 confirmed deaths on the mountain. After hearing the news, Sophia posted on Instagram:
There are no adequate words. Today I find myself attempting to pick up the pieces of my heart that have broken into such tiny shards, I'll likely never find them all. Today I, and so many of my loved ones, lost an incredible friend. Dan Fredinburg was one-of-a-kind. Fearless. Funny. 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. He was one of my favorite human beings on Earth. He was one of the great loves of my life. He was one of my truest friends. He was an incredible brother, a brilliant engineer, and a damn good man.
If you want to shit yourself, here's video from Everest base camp of the avalanche. I think I'll just stick to Taco Bell, thank you very much.
