I Thought I Was Dead

This is one of those stories about Mount Kilimanjaro that you don’t want to read. It’s the almost tragic experience of someone who made one wrong move while climbing Kilimanjaro – and it almost cost him his life. The story is about pharmacist Steve Ziebell who had an accident on Kilimanjaro. Ziebell hit his head and fell into into a crevasse. Afterwards, he had a 16-hour trip down the mountain on a stretcher with a blood clot near the brain. He ended up having three surgeries in a Nairobi hospital.
