Pembrokeshire: Young child airlifted after police respond to reports of car ‘in collision with’ pedestrians | UK News

A young child has been airlifted after an incident outside a hospital in Pembrokeshire.

Officers were called to reports of a car colliding with pedestrians outside Withybush Hospital in Haverfordwest at about 11.50am on Wednesday.

A pedestrian, the driver of the car and a passenger have all been taken to hospital for treatment.

Police said the child was airlifted to Cardiff for treatment.

Dyfed-Powys Police said they would have a continued presence outside the hospital for a “number of hours” as the investigation continues into the circumstances surrounding the incident.

Withybush Hospital’s director, Andrew Burns, said services continued to “operate as normal”.

“If you are attending for an outpatient appointment, you may experience some delay in parking while investigations are under way but this is expected to return to normal in due course,” he added.

Walker airlifted to hospital after being swept over waterfall in Scotland | UK News

A walker suffered multiple injuries and had to be airlifted to hospital after he was swept over a waterfall in Scotland.

The man lost his footing and fell into a burn – a stream – which led to the Grey Mare’s Tail waterfall near Moffat, in Dumfries and Galloway in the Scottish Lowlands, in challenging weather conditions on Saturday morning.

He was then swept over one of a series of waterfalls – a fall of 10-15m (about 33-49ft) – before being carried further along the burn by the current, according to the Moffat Mountain Rescue Team.

The waterfall is one of the most spectacular natural landmarks in the south of Scotland, with a main fall of 60m (about 197ft) – making it the fifth highest cascade in the UK.

Mountain rescuers attended the scene alongside other emergency services including police and firefighters, as well as helicopters from the coastguard and the Helimed trauma team, after the alarm was raised at 10.30am.

Rescuers had to contend with winds of up to 40mph as they sought to extract the man from the area. He was winched from the water and initial care was given to him on the banks of the stream before he was taken by helicopter to Glasgow’s Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.

Mountain rescue team leader James Coles said: “He lost his footing and slipped in. The main waterfall is huge, fortunately he didn’t go over that one, but there is a series of upper waterfalls.

“He was swept along the burn then over the waterfall and was then swept further along the burn and somehow he managed to stop himself.

“He was there with friends and they raised the alarm. It was a bit of bad luck, they were trying to take photos of the lovely scenery and it appears he slipped and ended up in the burn.”

A spokesman for the rescue team said: “With gusts of wind up to 40mph, all teams involved had a challenging day on the hill before being stood down at 2.30pm.”
