Boy, 12, badly injured as roof collapses in Marsascala

A 12-year old boy has been rushed to hospital after the roof of his bedroom collapsed in gale-force winds.

The ceiling caved in as gusts of 103km/h battered the Maltese Islands.

Police said the accident happened in Church Street in Marsascala at about 3.15pm on Saturday.

Paramedics were called to the scene and administered first aid before the boy was taken to Mater Dei Hospital for further treatment.

Police investigations are ongoing.
