A class 4 boy fell from the second floor of his Kalyan school building and suffered multiple fractures on Thursday.
The boy is still critical in the ICU at Hiranandani Hospital, Powai.
“On Thursday afternoon, during recess, our security guards saw Manish Nathani trying to climb on to the parapet, losing his balance and falling from the second floor of the school building,” said Preculius Peter, principal of St Thomas School and Church.
The teachers rushed Manish Nathani to Mira Hospital in Ulhasnagar, but as his condition was serious, the doctors advised his parents to shift him to a super-specialty hospital.
“As the incident took place on the school premises, we will bear the medical expenses of the boy,” the principal added.
The school authorities also informed the police about the incident.
“Investigations are on. But only when the boy is stable and can speak, we will know what exactly happened,” Inspector Subhash Patil of the Mahatma Phule police station.
The boy’s father, a businessman from Ulhasnagar, is in state of shock and could not talk to the media.
