A SCHOOLBOY who fell from a multi-storey car park remains in a serious condition in hospital but is improving.

He fell from the seventh floor of Teville Gate car park in Worthing last Friday and was airlifted to St George’s Hospital in London, and is still there.

The 12-year-old was reportedly in school uniform at the time of the fall, which happened at about 4pm.

On Saturday, we reported an 11-year-old eyewitness who claims to have seen the boy before he fell.

He said at the time: “I saw him walking up on the third floor and he had his hands on his knees.

“I stood watching him for a minute because I was worried.

“He wasn’t with anyone and was in school uniform.”

The Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance landed at Homefield Park where it collected the boy and took him to hospital.

A spokeswoman for Sussex Police said: “He [the boy] has been receiving treatment at St George’s Hospital in London and, although his condition remains serious, it is improving.

“We believe that there is no criminal activity related to his fall and the focus of police, with our partners will now be to support the child and his family.”
