Girl taken to hospital after school trampoline fall
3:00pm Sunday 30th March 2014 in News
A teenager was taken to hospital after injuring her elbow while trampolining at school.
Despite pro-actively releasing information about the incident, which happened on March 21, the East of England Ambulance Service would only reveal it happened at a school in the Halstead area.
It was later established it happened at Hedingham School in Sible Hedingham.
An ambulance spokesman said: "We received a call at 11.55am to reports of a girl who had hurt her elbow when landing on a trampoline.
“We assessed the girl, who had potentially broken her elbow, before taking her to West Suffolk General Hospital for further treatment.”
He added: “We do regularly receive calls for incidents that have happened at schools - trips in the playgrounds, clashes of heads on the football pitch etc - but trampolining calls are certainly rarer."
