Children hurt in fair accident
SEVEN children were being treated last night for “potentially serious injuries” after an inflatable slide is believed to have collapsed at a fireworks funfair.
Surrey Police said Woking Park was evacuated as medics, including an air ambulance crew, treated the children yesterday.
South East Coast Ambulance Service said it had “multiple crews” at the scene of the “significant incident”.
“Our clinicians have treated six children on scene for potentially serious injuries,” Seacamb said in a statement.
The patients were being transported to “major trauma centres” in London with the help of the air ambulance, the statement added.
The ambulance service later confirmed that seven children were being treated.
Woking Fireworks said: “We are all very shocked and distressed by events in the funfair this evening.
“We.are focusing in assisting the emergency services in dealing with the injured children.”
