A teenage boy is in a critical condition after getting entangled on a high ropes course on a school camping trip.

The boy is now with his parents in the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital in Brisbane.
Students from Marist College are set to leave the campsite this afternoon, where they will be debriefed.
Headmaster Peter McLoughlin says that the students were already informed about the accident and that the school is ready to provide counselling support as needed.
The centre has also been reached out to for comment.
At present, further details on the accident have yet to come out.
The Adventure Alternatives Education Centre is a family business set up in 2000. In 2007, an Outdoor Education Centre was established in order to accommodate over a hundred people out in the bush.
