TANZANIA (eTN) – A British man collapsed and died just a few minutes after reaching Africa’s highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro, the climb which he wished to fulfill during his lifetime.

TANZANIA (eTN) – A British man collapsed and died just a few minutes after reaching Africa’s highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro, the climb which he wished to fulfill during his lifetime.

Alistair Cook had just sent a text message to his wife Vicky Cook, telling her about his conquest of Africa’s highest peak, but suffered a fatal heart attack shortly before descending from the mountain’s snow capped peak.

Mr. Cook, an experienced climber, told his wife through a text message that he felt “exhausted but so happy” after reaching the summit of Kilimanjaro.

Mr. Cook was the first of his five-strong party to reach the top of the mountain in Tanzania, despite being the oldest by a decade.

Reports from his expedition team said Mr. Cook undertook the trek with four other climbers as part of a trip organized by Team Kilimanjaro, a company which specializes in climbing holidays on the mountain.

He had taken mountain climbing training for about 18 months, and walked near his home every morning. He had also scaled Mount Snowdon in Wales, in preparation for the challenge in Africa.

Standing at 19,336 feet, snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest peak and the world’s tallest walkable mountain.
