Bo-tree branch injures 15 children, three critical

Fifteen pre-school children were injured when a Bo-tree branch fell on them while they were observing ‘Sil’ near a historic Bo-tree in Pahamune, Narammala.

Three children in serious condition were admitted to the Kurunegala Teaching Hospital for further treatment. The other injured children were admitted to the Narammala District Hospital. Hospital sources said some of them had left after obtaining treatment. Two parents who came to rescue the children had also sustained minor injuries.

The Bo-tree is said to be about 100 years old and is located around 200 meters away from the pre-school.
