Adventure instructor critical after fall

Post by justin »

Does anyone know anything about the following?

Johannesburg - A man was critically injured when he fell from a high-line cable, five metres above the ground, at an adventure centre in Oaklands, Johannesburg on Monday, paramedics said.

Netcare911 spokesperson Jeffrey Wicks said the man, who was an instructor at the centre, sustained head, chest and pelvic injuries.

Paramedics found him lying on the floor beneath the suspended cable.
The cause of the accident was not known and an internal inquiry would be conducted, Wicks said.
