Severe injuries to youth playing urban ninja

Fermo, August 26 - A 16-year-old boy is in serious condition after falling about 10 meters while jumping between buildings for recreation, authorities said Monday. The youth was taken to hospital in Ancona in eastern Italy after the fall which occurred in the Santo Caterina neighbourhood of Fermo, while he was practising a sport known as parkour. The extremely dangerous discipline involves following an inner-city obstacle course that might involve jumping between high buildings, crossing roofs or leaping across terraces, with participants using only their bodies and environment to propel themselves forward.
