    How about a little more info, as to why he fell, where it happened? It should surely be prevented from happening again?

      1. He fell because he slipped. 2. Table mountain slope. 3. It happened because he is a teenager and they are WILD and have no respect for mountains.

    What was he doing there? There must be age restriction to go there..its too dangerous...may the lil boy recover soon

      An age restriction to enjoy nature? Yeah...that makes sense.

    The mountain like any other thing should be enjoyed within rules. That's why a person has to customize themselves with rules if hiking.
