Rescue team leader Skinner Ndlovu said it was not an easy job rescuing Mlilo from the gorge.

“Rafting guides were mobilized to fetch him from the rocks in the gorge and carried him along the river upstream to where we managed to get him to the surface.”

Mlilo survived with eight fractured ribs on the left side, the left thigh, and a deep cut on the head. Mlilo is hospitalized at Mpilo Central hospital for specialized medical care after being transferred from Victoria falls hospital yesterday.
