Pupil fighting for life after ‘falling from window onto car’ at secondary school

A teenager is fighting for their life in hospital following a serious incident at a school.

The pupil, who is believed to be in Year 11, was airlifted to hospital following an incident at St Mary’s Catholic School in Windhill, Bishop’s Stortford, Hertfordshire, on Friday.

There are local reports the student fell out of a window onto a car, but this has not been confirmed by police.

The ambulance service deployed multiple units to the scene, including an air ambulance from the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA).

The student, thought to be 15 or 16-years-old, was treated at the scene before being rushed to hospital where he remains in a critical condition.

In a statement sent to parents, headteacher Andrew Celano asked parents and guardians to join in prayer for the student involved.

Mr Celano said: "I am sad to pass on the news that today one of our students was involved in a serious incident.

"We are currently waiting for an update from the hospital and ask that you join us in prayer for the student concerned.

"We will of course do all we can to support any members of our school community affected by this."

A spokeswoman for the East of England Ambulance Service said: "We were called at 12.57pm on April 20 to an incident at St Mary’s Catholic School in Windhill, Bishop’s Stortford.

"Two rapid response vehicles, an ambulance crew and the air ambulance from East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) were sent to help.

"One person was treated at the scene and was flown to Addenbrookes Hospital in a serious condition."

A Hertfordshire Constabulary spokeswoman said: "Police were called to St Mary’s Catholic School in Windhill, Bishop’s Stortford, at 1pm on Friday, April 20 after a student sustained serious injuries following an incident.
