Former 7 summits world record holder, Ian McKeever was killed on Kilimanjaro yesterday. He was struck by lightning as the team made their way to Lava Tower.

Thanks for letting me know, Tom.
It is very sad and quite unbelievable that this has happened, strength to the family and friends.

I had a team up the same week and they also had severe thunderstorms.

Cheers,
Harry
