Girl falls 30ft from tree in Beckhampton

An eight year-old girl was airlifted to hospital after she fell about 30ft from a tree and was knocked unconscious in Beckhampton, Wiltshire.

An ambulance service spokesman said the girl had been out for a walk with her father and dog when the incident happened at about 1830 BST on Saturday.

He said the father reported she was unconscious for about 40 seconds, but had come round when paramedics arrived.

She was airlifted to Frenchay Hospital, near Bristol, with an arm injury.

The spokesman said the girl was taken to the hospital, which has a specialist head injury unit, as a precaution.
