A TWO-YEAR OLD child with severe head injuries was airlifted to hospital in Dublin overnight, after falling from the first floor of a building.

It happened in the south-east of the country. Exact details of the location weren’t immediately available.

The child was taken first to University Hospital Waterford – before a decision was made late last night to transfer him to Dublin.

The Coast Guard Rescue 117 was called in, and the toddler was taken by air to Dublin Airport, where an ambulance was waiting to take him to hospital.

The craft touched-down at the airport in the capital shortly before 3am.

The child has been receiving treatment in a Dublin hospital since the early hours of this morning.

He’s understood to be in a serious but stable condition.
