Boy falls down cliff face


Wednesday 29th July 2015 – 9.35pm – Chris Kowalik.


A seven year old boy has suffered a head injury following a fall while out walking with his family.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to Stepping Stones in Dovedale, in the Peak District shortly before 4.40pm today.

A Community First Responder was already in the area and was therefore first on scene, joined by an ambulance crew, a paramedic area support officer in a rapid response vehicle and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Staffordshire attended. They were helped by wardens from the National Trust which owns the land. The wardens helped to fetch and carry equipment and looked after the parents.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The boy had reportedly fallen about thirty feet and he had a head injury. His head wound was dressed and he was immobilised and given pain relief before being flown to Birmingham Children’s Hospital.”

  1. Any updates to weather the boy was ok, we were in the area at the time and just wanted assurance to weather he was ok?

    1. hi Billy – unfortunately, once we drop the patient off at hospital we have anything more to do with them so never find out what the long term outcome was unless they write in to say thanks and mention it. Sorry we can’t be more helpful.
