A 7-year-old boy overcomes fear and falls into a canyon

The boy fought a life-threatening injury after fear fell into a canyon north of Perth.

Daniel Ford, 7, suffered multiple vertebral fractures and maintained a 30 cm rift in his forehead after plunging 5 meters into the Joffre Valley in Karijini National Park on October 2.

However, these injuries were not enough to control the radiant boy who recovered at Perth Hospital without being paralyzed.

Daniel was traveling with his family when he slipped into the canyon around 9am.

Emergency personnel, including workers near WA Police, the SES Vertical Rescue Team, St. John’s WA, and Fortesca Metals, had to scale the popular canyon to lift the boy out of trouble.

The canyon is located in a national park more than 1400 km north of Perth.

Trained in first aid, John Wilson overcame acrophobia and made the boy safe, nine news reports.

“He was in a lot of pain, but he was able to shed tears, hold them back and stay calm,” Wilson told reporters.

Daniel was taken to Perth Hospital where he was treated for six fractured vertebrae and head lacerations.

In a photo posted on Facebook, the Western Australian Fire Department said the boy was recovering without paralysis.

“We hope he will do his best for a quick recovery,” the post reads.
