A four-year-old Spanish child died in the Port of Pollensa yesterday after being struck by a window shutter.
The four-year-old was in the port on a family holiday and was with his parents as they went shopping when the tragic accident occurred along the main Pollensa to Formentor road which runs through the centre of the town. The impact of the shutter, which fell from a fourth floor window, proved fatal and, despite the efforts of paramedics who rushed the child to the Port of Pollensa air force base to be airlifted by helicopter to Son Dureta hospital, the four-year-old died before the 061 emergency hospital reached the air force base. Last night a team from Ib-Salud Balearic health service, including psychologists, were looking after the child's parents and family who were all suffering from deep shock and trauma. Police have opened a full investigation into the tragic accident which was witnessed by a number of foreign holidaymakers.
