Inspectors appeal for witnesses to fall at Chessington World of Adventures
THE Health and Safety Executive has launched an appeal for witnesses after a little girl was critically injured in a fall at Chessington World of Adventures.
Jessica Blake, four, suffered a bleed on her brain, a fractured skull and broken ribs when she fell 14ft while queuing for a Tomb Blaster ride at the Surrey theme park last Thursday at 1pm.
She was rushed to St George's Hospital, Tooting, where she remained today (June 12) in a critical but stable condition in the paediatric intensive care unit.
A special assembly was held this morning at Halfway Houses Primary School, the school in Sheerness, Kent, where Jessica attends, to explain to pupils what happened.
