2013-03-12 16:52:03 | (0 Comments)
The University of Technology (UTech) is to mobilise the public to donate blood in support of a student in hospital following an accident involving a goal post on the Campus.
UTech’s Senior Director of Advancement, Hector Wheeler, told The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre that Ricardo Lewis is in serious but stable condition at the University Hospital of the West Indies.
The student is said to have suffered a chest injury after a goal post fell on him on Friday afternoon.
Wheeler says the University continues to carry out its investigations.
He says it is expected that Lewis’ family will be meeting with school officials today.
Ricardo is a student in the Faculty of Education and Liberal Studies.
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.
