請問一句英文的文法

今天在空中英語教室六月號看到一個句子.

Since then,more than 500 people have died climbing the mountain.

我想問的是,問什麼後面會接climbing?

完整的句子應該是如何呢?

    Since then, more than 500 pepople have died climbing the mountain.

    = Climbing the mountain, more than 500 people have died since then.

    climbing the mountain是分詞構句,用來當述部have died的修飾語,提供死因。

    分詞構句是一種簡潔的寫作方式,不必視為某種子句省略的結果。

    Since then, more than 500 people have died after they went to climb the mountain.

    這是用副詞子句的寫法,較冗長。但因為前面有一個since當起點,後面又用一個after當起點,是滿混亂的。所以只用一個since,另一個用分詞構句來寫,是比較恰當的。

    一般運動類的動詞,都會以動詞加ing 來表示,如:

    go swimming.

    go hiking

    go shopping

    go mountain climbing

    go jogging

    go roller-skating

    have died because they climb

    people和they都是指同一個人

    所以可以省略+ing

    我猜ㄉ
