Clacton County High students to the rescue of boy
THREE students have been praised for rushing to get help for a young boy who was hurt after running into a gatepost.
The boy was in the play area next to Clacton Leisure Centre, in Vista Road, when he ran into the post and cut open his head.
Three Year 7 students at the neighbouring Clacton County High School – Tiffany Ball, Leila Bennett and Tayla Beaver – were close by and ran to the leisure centre to fetch help.
A spokesman for the school said: “A first aider was able to treat the boy before calling an ambulance. The boy’s carer was grateful for the girls’ help.”
