Mountaineer killed by lightning on Kilimanjaro. Friday, 4 January 2013 At 9:23:48 PM Wollemi
Message
Ireland's leading mountaineer and one of its most popular adventurers has been killed by lightning in front of his fiancee as the couple led charity climbers up Africa's highest peak.

Maybe not so unusual, as higher rates of lightning strikes seemingly occur in a broad band around the equatorial regions.

I had never heard of Ian McKeever, yet '...during a decade-long mountaineering career, he set a world record for the scaling the highest peaks on all seven continents, in 156 days.' And I had thought Ball and Hall's 7 summits in 7 months was some feat.
