Human beings have serious issues with adapting to such altitudes. In addition to that you also have much higher frostbites risk even from not-so-low temperatures.

Hydraulic surge in generator #2 looks like most likely reason of the accident (the reasons of surge are not that clear still though, people talk about destruction of turbine or generator failure).
