Ernest Hemingway and Mary Welsh Survive Two Plane Crashes

Ernest Hemingway and Mary Welsh Survive Two Plane Crashes

In the summer of 1953, Ernest and Mary were involved in two plane crashes in two days while in Africa. Following the first accident, word had spread that the writer died, many publications prematurely publishing his obituary before the couple finally arrived at their destination of Entebbe. Though both were injured, Hemingway suffered yet another traumatic brain injury with a fractured skull.
