A young girl who was playing on metal gym equipment in a park in Stourport-on-Severn has been airlifted to hospital after suffering serious facial injuries.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to a park near Raven Street in Stourport-on-Severn at 11.00am this morning (Monday). A community paramedic, an ambulance and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The 12-year-old girl had reportedly been playing on metal bars in a park gym when she fell and hit her face on one of the bars.

“When ambulance staff arrived the girl had a nose bleed and, upon assessment, suspected she had a fractured nose and eye socket as well as a suspected neck injury.

“The little girl was given pain relief to help relieve the discomfort she was feeling before she was immobilised and transferred to the helicopter which had landed nearby. The girl was airlifted to the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch for further assessment and treatment.”
