Please download the document on the right, the information might save your life.


Some background on the document: The document was created when Heiko Tillwick (MCSA JHB Member) was struck and killed in Jan 2011 whilst walking in Waterval Boven in an open area above some climbing cliffs – at the time he was a significant distance from what looked like the most threating clouds and the open area was also not the highest point. There has been several deaths in the MCSA membership due to lightning but also some very miraculous stories of bystanders providing the right first aid and saving people’s lives.
