Child breaks leg in play area ball pit
5:17pm Tuesday 1st October 2013 in News
A CHILD has suffered suspected multiple fractures to his leg after falling badly in a ball pit.
The six-year-old was playing at Go Bananas off Mason Road, Colchester, when he was injured.
The air ambulance was called at 3.24pm today but the youngster was taken by land ambulance to Colchester General Hospital for treatment.
Michelle Preston, manager at the popular adventure play centre, said: "He was on a frame high up and jumped into the ball pit but landed badly."
The venue has recently passed all its safety checks and this is being put down to an accident during a very busy day.
Ms Preston said: "We are often busy after school but have obviously been busier today because of the strike."
