Eleven-year-old boy survives 200m fall in Bukit Bal hiking accident


SEREMBAN (Bernama): An eleven-year-old boy who had hiked up up Bukit Bal here Sunday (Oct 11) with his family survived a 200m fall from the top.

The victim, however, suffered serious spinal and hip injuries in the 6pm incident, Seremban 2 Fire and Rescue Station operations commander Senior Fire Officer Mohd Syazwan Saidy said.

The boy and three other family members had reached the peak at 230m above sea level when he slipped and fell shortly after.

Responding to a distress call, the rescue team had to use special equipment to pull the victim up to safety, before sending him to the Tuanku Ja'afar hospital here, Mohd Syazwan said, adding that the operation took almost one-and-a-half hours. - Bernama
