He was an amazing child, a boy who’d touched many lives. Kieran Schultz’s sudden and tragic death after losing his footing and falling off a cliff at the old harbour in Hermanus, Western Cape, has left deep and lasting pain in his parents’ lives.

“Yet if I could do it all again, even knowing what would happen, I would,” says actor Waldemar Schultz, the 14-year-old’s father.
