A ten-year-old boy was knocked out of a window in Rhineland-Palatinate while playing blind-cow games and injured. He was taken to hospital with a rescue helicopter, the police said. The condition of the child is therefore stable.
The student was on a school trip in a youth hostel in Mayen near Koblenz. On Wednesday night, he climbed on a second-floor windowsill and lost his balance during a blind-cow play with roommates.
The boy crashed from the open window about ten feet into the depths. When the emergency services arrived, he was conscious and approachable. The police spoke of a regrettable calamity.
