Acaimie rescued her husband

Episode 36,  Nov 08, 2019, 08:00 AM

Acaimie and Clay were on a volcano hike on Mt Liamuiga, an inactive volcano on the island of St Kitts in the Caribbean. They hiked 2.5 miles up to the rim, then Clay decided he wanted to climb down into the crater. It was pretty steep so Acaimie decided against it. Clay fell hard, fracturing his skull. They were alone and without any cell service, so it was up to Acaimie to get them out of the volcano and to medical help. And this happened on their honeymoon.

Acaimie and her husband, Clay, have been through a pretty bizarre experience. When I heard this story, I knew I needed to talk to this young lady.

She and Clay were doing a volcano hike. That in itself might seem story-worthy. But this was not actually an “active” volcano so it wasn’t spewing lava. They hiked the 2 ½ miles up to the rim, hung out for a while, took some pictures. Then Clay decided he wanted to climb down into the crater. Acaimie didn’t feel safe because of the steep incline, so Clay ventured down on his own. Things didn’t go as planned.

This happened on an island, and they were all alone, and Acaimie had no phone signal to call for help.

And, they were on their honeymoon – they had only been married a few days.

Acaimie and Clay are back home in Indiana now. What you’re about to hear is an experience they would not have chosen to go through, but they do have quite a story to tell their grandchildren some day.
