A young boy suddenly collapsed and died in front of terrified children and parents while enjoying a good time at a soft play center.
On Tuesday afternoon, first responders rushed to the Crash Bang Wallop soft play center in Walsall Wood, England, after reports of an 8-year-old boy collapsing while having fun.
Though the young boy was immediately put on life support and airlifted to the nearest children’s hospital, he sadly passed away just hours after the incident.
Following the youngster’s tragic death, it has been confirmed that the 8-year-old suffered a cardiac arrest while playing at the center.
“We were called at 4.26pm to reports of a medical emergency on Lindon Road, Walsall. Two ambulances, a paramedic officer, two Critical Care Cars from the Air Ambulance Service and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford attended the scene,” the West Midlands Ambulance Service confirmed after the incident.
“Upon arrival we found a child in a critical condition. He received advanced life support from ambulance staff on scene and was conveyed to Birmingham Children’s Hospital for further assessment.”
After the boy’s death, one of his relatives spoke out to thank the center’s staff and the first responders for doing everything in their power in an attempt to save the child’s life.
“Thank you to everyone at Crash Bang Wallop, for all of your kindness, help and support this evening,” they wrote.
“It must of been very traumatic for you all. I cannot thank you enough for looking after my family. All our love. Nanny xx”
