Response to August 2004 Accidents/Rescues

 

The Star reports that Barry Clements, 57, died of a heart attack while climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania last week. Barry collapsed four hours into the summit push.

"One of the highlights of his life was an attempt on Mount Everest in 2002, although fatigue prevented him from reaching the summit. He also ran the Comrades 10 times and was a five-time Dusi canoe marathon veteran."

Barry Clements was the founder of the Game chain stores.
