Teen Ben Shaw Dies After PCYC Incident

Ben Shaw, the 15 year old involved in a gym incident in a Brisbane PCYC earlier this week, has died as a result of his injuries. 

He passed away on Saturday in the Lady Cilento Hospital. 

Shaw was injured when a 98kg bar weight crushed his neck earlier this week, critically injuring him. 

His football team The Pine Central Holy Spirit Hornets confirmed the devastating news on their Facebook page this morning. 

Shaw's family are, however, proud to be able to donate his tissue and organs to other families in need in hope of helping others sustain life. 

Our thoughts go out to the family, friends and community at this time. 

Pine Rivers PCYC will remain closed until further notice.
