Mother-of-two Marie Carlucci has spoken of her shock after both her sons suffered broken legs when a metal fence fell on them.Oh, no! Is this another case like that of poor little Saurav Ghai?
Mrs Carlucci, a biologist who works at Oxford Science Park, said the accident happened on a pathway off Thame Road on Friday, February 4.Ah. I think I see the problem here. Clearly, as a biologist, the laws of physics are a mystery to her...
She said: “I picked up Arthur from school with Remi.
“I was talking to another mum when Arthur climbed on to the bridge railing which is supposed to prevent people from falling into a ditch. The railing suddenly fell on his legs and on his brother’s legs.”
“You would think it would be safe to walk around a village like Warborough on the way back from school…”It is. You just have to keep your children from climbing on railings, rickety or not. Is that too hard to understand?
I mean, even if they aren’t unstable, falling off them is bound to hurt…
Nicole Cooper, headteacher of St Laurence CofE Primary School in Thame Road, Warborough, said the pathway was about a quarter of a mile from the school.That they should need reminding tells you all you need to know, doesn’t it?
She added: “There are 65 pupils at the school and I have emailed all the parents to let them know what happened and to remind them that their children shouldn’t climb on gates and railings.”
