Theme park ride tumble child treated at London hospital

12:49 10 June 2012

A four-year-old girl who fell off a theme park ride was treated at a London hospital for serious injuries.

The incident happened at Chessington World of Adventures on the Tomb Blaster ride, on Thursday.

Two ambulances and two fast response cars attended the scene. She was taken to St George’s hospital in south London.

Police said the incident was a matter for the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

“The resort’s fully trained medical staff were on site immediately and administered direct care to the child until ambulance teams arrived. She was then taken to hospital in a conscious state,” said a spokesman.

“The HSE has also been advised, and we will of course co-operate fully with them on any investigations they wish to carry out.

“We have been in touch with the family and all our thoughts and best wishes are with them at this difficult time.”
