He was taken to the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast. Malcolmson Park was closed to traffic following the incident.

"My thoughts in the first instance are with the child, his parents and the driver of the car involved. My prayer is that the child will make a speedy recovery, " said Ms Lockhart.
"Details are sketchy at this point however I want to commend our emergency services once again who were on site quickly and who treated the child.
