9 year old suffers serious burns on school camp

Hokitika, West Coast

On Tuesday the 24th, October 2023, a group of primary school students from Hokitika headed on a camp of a lifetime to Waipara Adventure Camp.

This quickly turned into a tragic event when a 9 year old boy suffered serious burns. He was airlifted to Christchurch Hospital with his Dad by his side as he was present at camp, thankfully.

He has already had 2 surgeries so far and many more to come. He is in a medically induced coma.

With ongoing surgeries,hospital appointments, and treatments plus day to day living, there will be unexpected expenses for this beautiful family.

This is a tragic event that has not only affected the young boys whanau but also the wider community we have set this page up with the permission of the whanau so the community and wider community can show their love and support to the whanau.

So, on behalf of the whanau, thank you all for your love and support.
