Mysuru– A 13-year-old boy sustained grievous head injuries when he fell from the terrace of a school at Paduvarahalli this morning.

The boy has been identified as Arun, son of Kumar, a resident of 3rd Cross, Paduvarahalli. Arun, a 7th Standard student of Government Higher Primary School, Paduvarahalli, was playing cricket along with his friends at the school premises around 10.30 am when one of the batsmen hit the ball on the terrace. Since the school had no staircase, Arun climbed on the roof holding the iron grills of a window.  After retrieving the ball, Arun started to climb down when he slipped and fell from a height of 20 ft. He sustained severe head injuries. Seeing Arun’s condition, the boys who were playing with Arun, panicked and fled the spot. A few residents, who saw Arun lying in a pool of blood, rushed him to the nearby Brindavan Hospital.

Sources at the Hospital said that Arun’s condition was critical. Jayalakshmipuram Police were expected to visit the hospital and also conduct a mahazar at school premises.
