Hannah McAleese

Avalanche survivor Hannah McAleese speaks to journalist Neil MacKay about her 'moment of fear' after being swept 1000ft down Ben Nevis in March 2006. Although Hannah was seriously physically injured, to the point of being in a medically induced coma to help her recover, it's the psychological challenge of the fall which has remained most vividly with her. In this open, honest and very moving account she explains to Neil about her journey to piece together exactly what happened and her battle to understand how something which you have no memory of can have such a profound impact on your life.
