Shock as boy falls from multi-storey Portsmouth car park
People in Portsmouth city centre have been left shocked after a boy fell from a multi-storey car park.
Police closed an off-street NCP car park opposite a multi-storey car park, which is above Tesco in Crasswell Street, after the boy was found at 8am.
A woman at the scene said her sister, a nurse, had discovered the boy whilst walking to work.
The woman, who asked not to be named, said: ‘She saw something was wrong and went to help - she’s a real good Samaritan.
‘She said he’s in a critical condition and has been taken by air ambulance to hospital.’
The air ambulance landed in the Market Way car park north of Cascades shopping centre.
A resident who lives in nearby Buckingham Street said: ‘It’s so sad.
‘It’s about the fourth time something like has happened in two years.’
A passer-by, who asked not to be named, said: ‘I hope he pulls through. It’s such a sad thing to happen.’
The multi-storey car park has reopened.
