Man dies after Table Mountain fall

A climber has died after he slipped and plunged about 500 meters to the bottom of the Duiwelskloof second waterfall ravine on Table Mountain. The accident happened yesterday when Nicholas Abbott and Timothy Cromby, both in their early twenties, were ascending the ravine. Wilderness Search and Rescue organiser Kevin Tromp said that the men were about halfway to the top when Abbott slipped and fell. A Metro Red Cross rescue helicopter was sent out, as well as two members of Wilderness Search and Rescue. Abbott was stabilised on the mountain before being airlifted to Vincent Pallotti Hospital, where he later died.
