Friends pray for twins injured in Lisburn collision

By Amanda Ferguson

A primary school has held a special assembly for a little boy left fighting for his life after being struck by a car.

The child and his twin brother, thought to be aged six, were struck by the vehicle at around 3.30pm on Wednesday afternoon at Railway Street in Lisburn.

Ballymacward PS principal Brendan Sadlier said: "After hearing the distressing news, this morning we had a special assembly for pupils and staff.

"The thoughts and prayers of the school are with the family at this very difficult time."

Last night, a Belfast Trust spokeswoman said one of the brothers, understood to be from Crumlin, is still in a critical condition at the Royal Victoria Hospital and described the other boy's condition as stable.

A PSNI spokeswoman told the Belfast Telegraph the circumstances of the collision remain under investigation.
