The boy was found to be in less serious condition, however, the little girl´s condition was serious. The incident occurred on Friday just before 9.00 pm in the Plaza Nostra Senyora del Roser.
As stated by SAMU 61, due to the large number of metres involved in the fall, the emergency services activated the ‘Polytrauma Code’, bringing it to the attention of the hospital’s paediatric team. Polytrauma or multiple trauma, is a medical term describing the condition of a person who has been subjected to multiple traumatic injuries.
At the moment, we do not have an update as to the condition of the children.
