A young girl is between life and death after being seriously injured by the fall of the portal of the rugby stadium of Vendres (Hérault), reveals the Midi Libre.
The child was playing with friends on Monday afternoon in the stadium parking lot when the gate, which weighs about 500 kg, collapsed on her.
Alerted by the children, a resident of the stadium quickly intervened to free the victim from the weight of the gate. The girl was helicoptered in very serious condition to the hospital in Montpellier. His vital prognosis was still on Monday evening.
A drama that could have been avoided?
A gendarmerie investigation was opened to shed light on the circumstances of the accident.
According to testimonies collected by France Bleu Hérault, the stop post, which allows the gate to be blocked when it is closed, was found on the ground.
Several rugby players, interviewed by the station, claim that the pole, which was already on the ground on Friday, was struck by a truck. Why has nothing been done to restore it? This is one of the questions that the gendarmes will have to answer.
