Boy Dies in Parkour Jumping Accident

A 12-year-old boy has died after suffering injuries whilst practising the sport of “parkour”.

The incident occurred on Tuesday when the boy was practising the sport in the Medina Sidonia area of Cádiz.

Parkour is a physical sport in which a person jumps from one point to another, performing some form or acrobatic move, using nothing but the body and its motor ability for force and trajectory.

The boy fell on Tuesday and suffered serious injuries, tragically losing his life, in hospital, on Wednesday.
