Teen fighting for his life following stabbing incident outside school

After a stabbing incident outside his school, a 15-year-old Pinetown boy is currently fighting for his life at a medical institution.

Emergency personnel responded to reports of a stabbing outside a school in the Ashley area of Pinetown, west of Durban, on Friday, the 4th of March 2022, according to Kyle van Reenen of Emer-G-Med Paramedics. "On arrival on scene, a 15-year-old male was found to have sustained a stab wound to his abdomen and was in a critical condition," he said.

Van Reenen claimed he needed advanced life support to stabilize him before being put on a mechanical ventilator to help him breathe and taken to a nearby hospital.

This story is still developing.

The last place a parent would expect a child to be critically injured is at school. The number of school children who have been injured or murdered in recent weeks is alarming, indicating that schools should beef up security procedures to guarantee that students do not carry deadly weapons that could endanger their classmates.
