Hilton College will be reviewing its future excursions after double tragedy struck the prestigious boys’ school this week.
The school’s annual Outward Bound trip came to an abrupt halt on Friday after one of the pupils died and another suffered serious injuries, forcing doctors to amputate his arm.
The group of 10 boys and two adults were hiking in the Drakensberg as part of the leadership excursion when tragedy struck.
The excursion was cut short yesterday when Chris Loxton died after he suffered multiple seizures on Thursday afternoon. He was taken to hospital but died early on Friday morning.
