Pupil air-lifted after school fall

A SEVEN year old from Beckley Primary School was airlifted to a London trauma following a playground fall last Friday.

The youngster suffered a suspected serious head injury.

Staff at the school called 999 and the Sussex Air Ambulance was mobilised.

He was airlifted, along with his mother, to Kings College Hospital in South London.

An East Sussex County Council spokesman, speaking on behalf of the school, said this week: “He has been discharged from hospital and is at home.”
