Boy taken to hospital after getting trapped under tram on Blackpool Prom

A 14 year old boy has been taken to hospital after he became trapped under a tram near Waterloo Road on Blackpool Promenade during the Ride the Lights event on Tuesday 27th August at approximately 2150. The boy became trapped under Flexity2 001 with fire crews having to use specialist equipment to lift the tram to free him. He suffered “multiple major trauma injuries” and was taken by Paramedics to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool where he has been described as being in a critical condition. Our thoughts go out to all those involved in the incident.
