2013-03-11 13:35:20 | (0 Comments)
The Papine-based University of Technology (UTech) has launched an investigation into a weekend incident in which a goal post reportedly fell on a student.
The male student is reportedly at the University Hospital of the West Indies nursing chest injuries.
The circumstances under which Saturday's incident took place remain unclear.
Up to news time, the latest on his condition could not be ascertained.
A member of the school’s administration told The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre that an official statement could be issued this afternoon.
In 2011, the education ministry ordered the immediate removal of all un-anchored goal posts from public infant and primary schools, after the death of a St. Ann infant.
The education ministry had also noted that it is part of a committee exploring the options for the use of safer materials in the construction of goal posts.
