There was a 2nd child involved in this, he escaped with cuts and bruises, as I know the people involved and the incident.
big sigh of relief he's up and about. Despite a lot of issues with the NHS in the press, they were absolutely fantastic.
Incident was a clear bright sunny afternoon, van just ploughed into them.
I'm not here to start a debate about Helmets, but you have to think that in this case it was a big factor in his survival!
