School ceiling collapses, 12 children rushed to hospital

12 children and an adult have been hospitalized after a school ceiling collapsed in South London.

The incident occurred on Monday November 15, on the second floor of Rosemead Preparatory School on Thurlow Park Road, Dulwich. It was also learnt that all the children have been accounted for after a search.

Several kids were injured in the incident. An ambulance spokesperson said several crews were sent and 16 people were treated at the scene on top of those taken to hospital. It’s unclear what condition the children and adult hospitalised are in.

The fee-paying school which caters for children from nursery up to the age of 11, charges almost £5,000 (N2.7m) a term. It was also gathered that part of the school is housed in a building on the junction with Lancaster Avenue which was built in 1865.

Met Police spokesperson confirmed the collapse happened shortly before 9.25am and the school is in the process of contacting parents.
