Teen falls off Table Mountain

A Cape Town teenager is in a stable condition at Vincent Pallotti Hospital after falling off Lion's Head in the Table Mountain National Park.

The 15-year-old girl was hiking on Tuesday morning when she lost her footing and fell 30 metres.

Metro Emergency Medical Services' Wayne Smith said, “Luckily the fall was broken by some of the terrain and the bushes, otherwise it could have been quite a devastating fall. She was airlifted by the SkyMed helicopter. She suffered multiple injuries."
