Frozen water sabotages celebrity stunt to highlight worldwide water issues:

Jessica Biel’s trek up Mt. Kilimanjaro took a turn for the worse as a blizzard hit the hikers.

Biel, 27, is on the hike along with actors Emile Hirsch and Isabel Lucas, and a blizzard hit them on the fifth day of their journey.

An executive with the UN Foundation, Elizabeth Gore, said: ‘It’s pretty gnarly. The visibility is only 10 feet in front of you.

’And it’s cold. I’ve got six layers on.’

The group, which also includes entertainers as well as activists, are making the trip to raise awareness of the worldwide water issues.
