9years old girl suffers serious head injury after plunging from cliff

In a report posted by dailymail, stated that a nine-year-old girl has suffered a serious head injury after plunging from a cliff in front of horrified holidaymakers on a British beach.
The schoolgirl was seen falling at the popular tourist spot in Gwithian, Cornwall, yesterday afternoon. 

Paramedics, life-boatmen and the coastguard all rushed to help the child and her distressed family.
RNLI lifeguards were also alerted to the accident by the girl’s brother and administered first aid until the ambulance service arrived.

Medics on the scene said that she fell on to large rocks and sustained a serious head injury as a result. 

She was airlifted 18 miles by Cornwall Air Ambulance and is still being treated at the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro.
Although it is unclear where exactly the girl fell from, children often jump off a rock face in the area known as Sheep’s Pool. 

The beach was packed with families enjoying the last of the summer holidays when the suspected accident took place. 

A spokesman for South Western Ambulance Service said: ‘We were called at 12.01pm about an incident involving someone having fallen from rocks at Gwithian Beach, Hayle.
‘Our crews treated a female patient at the scene and transported her by air ambulance to hospital for further care. She had a suspected head injury.’ 

Devon and Cornwall Police said they were not involved in the response to the accident, according to Cornwall Live
