Wednesday 30th May 2018 – 11.30am – Jamie Arrowsmith.
The best efforts of ambulance and hospital staff were sadly not enough to save a teenage boy who died following an incident in Wolverhampton last night.
West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to reports of a stabbing on Strathfield Walk at 11.08pm and sent two ambulances, a paramedic officer and a rapid response paramedic to the scene. The first ambulance arrived in less than three minutes from when the 999 call was made.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a 15-year-old boy with serious injuries. The team of ambulance staff worked quickly to begin administering advanced life support to him at the scene and this continued as he was transferred to New Cross Hospital.
“Sadly, shortly after arrival at hospital it became apparent nothing could be done to save him and he was confirmed deceased.”
West Midlands Police are appealing for anyone with information about this incident to call 101; quoting log number 3060 of 29/5/18.
