A teenage boy has been taken to Queen’s Hospital after collapsing at a school in Romford.
Police and London Air Ambulance (LAA) were called to Marshalls Park Academy in Pettits Lane at 11.55am today (Monday, July 16).
A 15-year-old boy was taken to hospital, and headteacher, Neil Frost has reassured parents that the boy is now in the best hands with doctors and nurses at Queen’s Hospital in Romford.
He said the boy was walking along a school corridor at about 11.15 this morning, when he suddenly collapsed and hit his head.
The school then rang 999 and a paramedic vehicle arrived at the school.
The paramedics then called for a doctor who was brought to the school in an air ambulance.
Mr Frost said that police were also automatically called to the school - because an air ambulance had been called - however they left the school 15 minutes later.
He said the teenager was fully conscious when he left in an ambulance and that they are awaiting a further update from the hospital.
