In any sport, from time to time, there'll be accidents. Even more tragic when it's a youngster. Thai boxing is quite violent is it not ? This Lad at 13 should have been quite strong though. Very sad.

Reminds me of the problems with Rugby and youngsters in England - there have been many accidents with necks/backs over the years and as a result, I believe it's under tight control now. Anyway - thanks for posting. The 'Brexit' thread is a bit one sided without you and Robert. ATB
