Boy knocked down by car is 'stable' in hospital
A child who was critically injured when he was knocked down by a car in Co Down was last night described as being in a stable condition.
The five-year-old was rushed to the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children after the collision in Magheralin last Thursday evening.
He was initially fighting for his life, but a spokeswoman for the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust said he was now in a stable condition.
Meanwhile, police have re-issued their appeal for information about the incident.
The accident happened in the afternoon of January 12.
A spokesman for the PSNI said: "Police investigating the vehicle road traffic collision in Malcolmson Park in Magheralin on Thursday afternoon continue to appeal for witnesses.
"Just after 4.45pm, police received a report that a five-year-old boy had been involved in a collision with a blue Vauxhall Vectra."
Anyone with any information about the crash can contact officers at Lurgan police station.
