A five-year-old girl has died after being hit by a slow-moving vehicle at a steam fair in Cornwall.
The girl was hit at around 11:40 BST yesterday, Saturday 8th September, at Lanlivery Steam Fair, police have said. Paramedics treated the girl before she was flown to Derriford Hospital, where she unfortunately died. She had been at the event with her Devonish foster parents, and a full investigation along with a report to the Health and Safety Executive have been carried out.
The event was raising money for the Cornwall Air Ambulance and a charity called Fleet, which supplies emergency equipment. The family, who were running a stall at the event, agreed to the event continuing today because of this. They had said that they really wanted the rally to continue, according to Diane Williams, who is the secretary of the show.
Police have urged anyone who witnessed the incident to contact them to help with the investigation.
It is good to hear that the family have agreed to the event still running, but do you think that this is not respecting their child very much? Share your views by clicking “Read More & Comment”.
