Cape Town - Three-year-old Alime Mosekamedi is still fighting for his life at the St Joseph Hospital in Montana after he fractured his skull during a fall from a bridge in Khayelitsha last year.

He and other kids were walking across a railway line bridge in Enkanini in October 2016 when the incident happened.

Alime fell through a gap in the fencing of the footbridge, which straddles over the Kuyasa and Chris Hani train stations in Section 37.
