Falling to the depths: How I fell 800 meters and fought my way back to life

Gela Allmann

One minute Gela Allmann is standing on a mountain in Iceland for a photo shoot - the next, her life as an athlete and model seems to be over. After an agonizingly long fall 800 meters over rocks and ice, her body resembles a pile of rubble. But she survived and, with an overwhelming will to fight, embarks on a tough, painful journey: from complete immobility in her hospital bed, small milestones during rehab to the first mountain peak after the accident. She gives a moving account of how she succeeds in making a new start after the blow of fate.
