Boy impaled on Cwmbran railings

Boy impaled on Cwmbran railings

First published in Pontypool news
Last updated

A BOY was taken to hospital last night after he was 'impaled on metal fence post', it was said by emergency services.

Firefighters used hydraulic cutting equipment to free the boy - believed to be 14 - injured at a pen used to turn out ponies at the Nurseries Farm off Treherbert Road on Wednesday evening [July 30].

A spokesman for South Wales Fire and Rescue Service said he had been 'impaled on metal fence post'.

Farm workers at the scene said it was caused by a spike 'used to put up electric fences to restrict the movement of animals'.

The farm is situated near the Sunnydale Garden Centre and Gwent Crematorium on Treherbert Road.

South Wales Fire Service said that crews from Malpas and New Inn attended the incident after 8pm and used hydraulic cutting equipment to rescue the boy.

The Welsh Ambulance Service also attended the incident and took the injured boy to Royal Gwent Hospital in Newport but could not provide details of his injuries.

A Welsh Ambulance Service spokesperson said in an official statement: “At 8.03pm last night, Wednesday 30 July, we were called to reports a young male had impaled his leg on a spike in the Croesyceiliog area of Cwmbran.

“A crew in an emergency ambulance attended, and a boy was taken to Newport’s Royal Gwent Hospital.”

there should be no such thing as spiked railings and broken glass cemented on to the tops of walls in this day and age .especially when its children being injured by them, could very easily had killed him .

Why was he climbing over the railings in the first place, if he didn't do that then he wouldn't have got himself impaled.

tell that to the Blaenavon farmer who just had thousands of Pounds worth of equipment pinched.

This day and age is no different than any other day and age, if things of value need protecting any and all legal means should be used to protect.

Ask yourself this question....what was this boy doing to get himself spiked?

The spiked railings are supposed to be a deterrent, not an invitation for someone to scale them.

As for broken glass on wall tops, as I understand it, this has been outlawed for some time in the UK.

If it was not for the ugliness of it, and after three times having my tools and equipment stolen from my own garden buildings, to a total cost of over six thousand pounds, I would have razor wires all around my garden with an automatic machine gun on each corner, triggered to fire by infra red detection.

"A Welsh Ambulance Service spokesperson said the 12-year-old boy impaled his leg near the Sunnydale Garden Centre in Treherbert Road."

How near to the grounds, inside the grounds, away from the area?

People normally enter an exit a property thro a open gate.or drive

Why was he climbing over a metal fence with spikes on it.

The only one nr the centre is an entrance to a private house..............

As usual the Argus is being its usual vague self.

Please be sure to get all facts right before judging people. This simply says it was near the garden centre not at it. No he wasn't breaking and entering. The young boy was simply sat on and playing by a fence (not the big metal railings surrounding places like croesy school) he slipped and fell and hurt his leg and an ambulance and fire crew had to be called to free and treat him. He wasnt "up to no good" his parents were there at the time.

If his parents were near at the time, then what the hell were they doing letting him do something,whatever it was, that turned into such an emergency?

Kids are not even safe, if not properly supervised or unattended, even on council sited play equipment, as I discovered when my granddaughter fell from a slide in Pontypool park. She sustained a broken leg, the base was tarmac, which was then changed to soft bark material after a spate of similar accidents.

As for 'he was not up to no good', how come he got spiked then? the result of his escapade was due to not behaving in a sensible manner I suggest.

I'm sure most folk on here had accidents doing things they really shouldn't have been doing when they were 12 years old. I know I did and so did my son and daughter. Nothing illegal I might add but things that as an adult, we know are not safe, but as a child you don't see the danger. I hope the child makes a full recovery.

This child was obviously up to no good. I have seen in the Express that British children have been quietly trained by the Taliban to scale secure Welsh fences carrying a loaded AK47 under one arm and a big bag of Semtex under the other. All for a bag of sweets. I am not saying he was but it is possible. I, like the other patriotic Argus readers here, will not rest until the truth is out. Maybe they could give him a strong truth drug when they treat him? Waterboard his parents? Just a bit anyway with a damp dish cloth.

just to clarify the above unture headline the young boy did not have to be cut free from any raillings they used a cutting tool to cut the plastic end off the 6 inch bit of metal that had gone into his calf whilst he was in the riding arena this took approximatly 5 seconds if i could up load a picture of the plastic post which is max 1.5 by 1.5 inches and 3ft high i would, i would like to thank the emergency services as they were all on site in mintues and im sure a spokesperson from there did not give this false information!!! but most importantly the young man that unfortunatley got hurt in the accident is ok and home and will hopefully be back up and about doing what he loves most tending to his animals

OK.. so when I read a report on a news site I am to disregard it in case it is inaccurate.

Read the headline.

Firefighters use cutting gear to free boy impaled on railings in Croesyceiliog

I initially responded to the first headline. This gave a totally different picture. I then responded to the words of another who it seems attempted, not very clearly though, to clarify the matter, now you tell me to read a more apparently accurate report from the Bucket woman, ( BBC sit com).

Well I am now responding to you.


Try reading all my messages, they are in general about the dangers of young kids being in situations where potential; danger exists, No where did I make any comment that he was actually spiked, I responded to others.
Final point, had he been supervised properly he would not have even got a scratch, now would he?

I leave high horses to pedantic carpers like you.

In a perfect world everything would be perfect. It's not so "stuff" happens. Its called life, growing up and learning. I used to nick apples from orchards as a kid....still do. Glad the child is OK.

If his parents were near at the time, then what the hell were they doing letting him do something,whatever it was, that turned into such an emergency?

Kids are not even safe, if not properly supervised or unattended, even on council sited play equipment, as I discovered when my granddaughter fell from a slide in Pontypool park. She sustained a broken leg, the base was tarmac, which was then changed to soft bark material after a spate of similar accidents.

As for 'he was not up to no good', how come he got spiked then? the result of his escapade was due to not behaving in a sensible manner I suggest.

OK.. so when I read a report on a news site I am to disregard it in case it is inaccurate.

Read the headline.

Firefighters use cutting gear to free boy impaled on railings in Croesyceiliog

I initially responded to the first headline. This gave a totally different picture. I then responded to the words of another who it seems attempted, not very clearly though, to clarify the matter, now you tell me to read a more apparently accurate report from the Bucket woman, ( BBC sit com).

Well I am now responding to you.


Try reading all my messages, they are in general about the dangers of young kids being in situations where potential; danger exists, No where did I make any comment that he was actually spiked, I responded to others.
Final point, had he been supervised properly he would not have even got a scratch, now would he?

I leave high horses to pedantic carpers like you.
" No where did I make any comment that he was actually spiked"

Yeah you did.

"Ask yourself this question....what was this boy doing to get himself spiked?"

Plus, you could have saved yourself a lot of typing, and us a lot of reading, by just saying, "I stand corrected"

As far as supervision goes - ANY parent will tell you that it's impossible to watch your kids every second of every day - and it only takes that half a second you turn your back on the little blighters...

Plus, of course, most accidents happen whilst we do things that are entirely routine, and that we've done a thousand times.

Glad to hear the kid is okay.

This day and age is no different than any other day and age, if things of value need protecting any and all legal means should be used to protect.

Ask yourself this question....what was this boy doing to get himself spiked?

The spiked railings are supposed to be a deterrent, not an invitation for someone to scale them.

As for broken glass on wall tops, as I understand it, this has been outlawed for some time in the UK.

If it was not for the ugliness of it, and after three times having my tools and equipment stolen from my own garden buildings, to a total cost of over six thousand pounds, I would have razor wires all around my garden with an automatic machine gun on each corner, triggered to fire by infra red detection.
Automatics and infa -red? A bit over the top but brilliant.

Geeeeez.... Is there no such thing as an accident any more? People do just fall over and hurt themselves. It doesn't mean they were up to no good. Nor does it mean someone must be to blame. And it definitely doesn't mean the parents were negligent just because they didn't see or stop the child falling. It's just a child, who's out doing what he enjoys. Not stuck in the house on the playstation. Not terrorising housing estates. Not bothering anyone at all so give him a break!!

I would like to put spiked railings up all the way down Snatchwood Road to stop the thieving little bastards coming from wherever they are coming from to steal things, like as one example, the grills out the front of ones car, perhaps, or causing several thousand pounds worth of damage to Watkin & Sons cars. If they are reading this, got eyes on you, and if I see you thieving again, you will wish you had impaled yourself on a spike like this lad, you thieving little bastards.

But on a serious note, if that above is not already a serious note, kids do stupid things, it could have killed him. He will not be doing it again will he. So I am sure he has learned his lesson.
