Martin Hibbert and porters. See SWNS story SWLEmountain. A heroic fundraiser who was seriously injured in the Manchester Arena bombing has scaled Mount Kilimanjaro in an all-terrain wheelchair. Martin Hibbert, who was left with devastating spinal injuries from the explosion in 2017, took seven days to climb the massive 5,756 (18884 ft) mountain. The sports agency boss - who was helped by an eight-strong team - battled rough terrain, extreme temperatures and altitude sickness to summit Africas highest peak. He was the closest survivor to Salman Abedi when the terrorist detonated a homemade bomb in the foyer of the concert venue, following a performance by Ariana Grande.
