The sources we have been able to locate provide us with very little information. We have not been able to learn what led to his fall. Was the equipment mailfunctioning? Were the instructors educated to deal with kids in the harsh terrain? We don't know.
All we learned is that therapy in the wilderness claimed another life that day.
May he rest in peace.
