In a statement about Friday’s tragedy, West Midlands Ambulance Service said it rushed Joshua to hospital but he could not be saved. A spokesman said: ‘We were called to reports of a child who had collapsed at Langley School in Dawley, Telford. ‘The first ambulance arrived six minutes after the call and was backed up by a second ambulance, a paramedic manager, and the Midlands Air Ambulance from Cosford. ‘On arrival, crews found a patient in a critical condition, already receiving medical support from bystanders. Crews took over and provided advanced care to the child before he was taken on blue lights to Princess Royal Hospital.
‘The doctor and critical care paramedic on the aircraft traveled with the ambulance crew on the way to the hospital, where medics were on standby to receive the child. Sadly, shortly after arrival at the hospital, it became apparent nothing could be done to save the child despite everyone’s best efforts and he was confirmed deceased.’ A West Mercia Police spokesman added: ‘West Midlands Ambulance Service alerted us that they were responding to a medical emergency involving a child at a school in Telford.
