The fall sparked a massive rescue operation that involved a dozen fire crews and paramedics.

The teen was eventually pulled free after more than two hours.

He was raced to Royal Perth Hospital in a serious condition.

But his condition has worsened overnight and he remains in the intensive care unit with very serious head injuries and a broken arm.

A second person was also injured in the rescue on Friday.

That person sustained non life-threatening injuries.
