A 12 year old school boy has been extremely lucky to avoid serious injury after a collision with a 4×4.
The incident happened just before 4.00pm on Thursday 16th November outside Harborne Academy, Harborne Road, Edgbaston. An ambulance, a paramedic officer and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford with a MERIT trauma doctor on board were sent to the scene.
A spokeswoman said: “When crews arrived they found a boy, believed to be 12-years-old, who was on the floor after a collision with a 4×4. The boy was said to have initially been knocked unconscious however, he was thankfully awake when ambulance staff arrived though understandably upset.
“Crews carried out an initial assessment and found the boy had suffered an isolated head injury. Due to the boy being distressed, the crews quickly transferred him into the back of the ambulance where it was quieter and more private. The boy was given pain relief and he was fully immobilised before being taken to Birmingham Children’s Hospital for further assessment and treatment where on arrival he was said to be in a stable condition.”
