Ali Boulala was put in a hospital induced coma to stabilize his condition. As of today the hospital is planning on bringing Ali out of the controlled coma on Monday 12th March.

I actually went to school with shane and my sister was in his year level. its tradic cause a girl in the same class as him only passed away just one month ago. :( there is a lot of friends and family’s out there very broken right now. :( I remember watching his crazy skating skills at school. God Bless ya mate!

This trully sucks, he was an awsome skater who was going to go pro this year and had great style and alot of talent. He still had his whole life ahead of him. This is a huge loss in the entire skateboarding community. He was just at the wrong place at the wrong time.
