Bray People - - News -

A SPAN­ISH ex­change stu­dent who was hit by a bus on Her­bert Road last week was still in an in­duced coma at Beau­mont Hospi­tal yes­ter­day, as med­i­cal staff pre­pared to bring him out of it.

The child un­der­went surgery to re­lieve pres­sure to his brain as his dev­as­tated fa­ther, who has trav­elled from Spain, waited for news of his son’s con­di­tion.

The 12-year-old, who is a stu­dent of Belvedere Hall Col­lege in Windgates, suf­fered head in­juries as a re­sult of the col­li­sion which took place on the Bray road on Wed­nes­day evening last at around the time of 5 p.m.

He was rushed to hospi­tal for emer­gency treat­ment and is be­ing treated at the ICU in Beau­mont.

Gar­daí are hope­ful that the young boy will make a full re­cov­ery de­spite the fact that, for the mo­ment, he re­mains in a se­ri­ous con­di­tion.
