    Boy injured in advertising hoarding accident

    A young boy is in hospital after suffering an advertising hoarding injury at Manchester Airport.

    The four-year-old child was in Manchester Airport’s busy Terminal One when he was struck by a chunk of the public board.

    The incident happened near a security checkpoint area in the north-west travel hub at 7.48am on Thursday (May 26).

    Investigation into child accident

    The airport is promising a complete investigation into the child’s accident.

    North West Ambulance Service’s paramedic officers attended to the injuries where the accident happened.

    Wythenshawe Hospital staff are treating the boy for damage to his head and ankle.

    Witnesses reported seeing the blood-covered boy in distress following a massive bang, according to the Manchester Evening News.

    One Manchester Airport passenger told the Daily Mail that the boy was conscious as he was carried out on a stretcher, accompanied by his mother.

    Paramedics attended

    It is reported that the airport accident happened after two signs and a hoarding fell to the floor.

    Manchester Airport officials have confirmed the incident. A spokesman said that the airport’s own employees tended to the boy before paramedics arrived and took him to a nearby hospital.

    Health and safety officials are expected to investigate.

    The boy’s condition remains as yet unknown.
