|Two Boys In Serious Condition After Tree Falls in Fieldview
Nine year olds suffered severe head injuries at Spencer Cricket Ground
Two nine year old boys have suffered severe head injuries after a tree fell at Spencer Cricket Ground in Fieldview, Earlsfield today.
A Met Police spokesman said: "We were alerted by the ambulance service that a tree had fallen on children at Spencer Cricket Ground.
"This was at a private cricket club, but from what we have been told there were a bunch of kids queueing up to go in the nets. All of a sudden this tree came down on them... It is a private tree on private land but it has been pretty windy in town today and you can have a really healthy tree but if the wind catches in a prticular way a healthy tree can be blown over. The Council does not have any role to play."
All cricket at the ground has been suspended.
