Swing collapse leaves pupil paralysed

Hertfordshire pupil permanently paralysed

St Albans Magistrates’ Court heard how a 13-year-old pupil at the school was playing on a wooden swing in an adventure playground.

A Health and Safety Executive (HSE) investigation found the swing had collapsed because the supporting timbers had rotted. The heavy wooden cross beam of the swing fell onto the pupil’s head and neck causing spinal injuries that resulted in permanent paralysis.
