M&Ds Rollercoaster Schoolboy Victim STILL In Hospital After Surgery To Save Arm

A schoolboy - who almost lost his arm in the M&Ds rollercoaster crash - is still in hospital.

Ten people were injured after a rollercoaster derailed at M&D's amusement park in Motherwell last month.

Police said eight children and two adults were taken to hospital after the accident on the Tsunami ride at Strathclyde Country Park.

We can reveal 11 year old Liam Boyle remains in a 'stable' condition weeks on.

The schoolboy had to undergo hours of surgery to save his limb.

Earlier this month, Liam's grandad Thomas Campbell said: "The good news is Liam's operation has been a success they have saved his arm and hand recovery will take a while but at least we know he's going to be alright thanks for all the support much appreciated"

He also posted on Facebook saying: " the wee guy's came through a lot and everything from doctors and surgeons is all in a positive sense just hoping for a speedy recovery the evening times has a great article in it from the people who helped Liam can't thank them enough"

This follows news a safety inspector has been given a temporary ban as part of the probe into a crash.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) issued a prohibition notice banning the independent operator from carrying out any more inspections while its investigation into the derailment continues.
