The seven-year-old boy who fell from a rollercoaster at Lightwater Valley theme park in Yorkshire, UK, on 30 May has returned home from hospital.

The Health and Safety Executive, which is investigating the incident, said the boy is "out of hospital and recovering at home".

The child fell from the Twister coaster, a spinning steel ride capable of reaching a speed of 29 mph (47 km/h) with a top height of 43 ft (13m). Following the incident, the boy was declared to be in a critical condition.

He has now, however, recovered sufficiently to have been released from hospital.

In a short statement, Ian Cunningham, CEO of Lightwater Valley Theme Park, said: "We heard great news – that the child who fell from our ride is now out of hospital and recovering at home.

"All of us at Lightwater Valley wish him well in his ongoing recovery.

"This has been extremely distressing for the family and for all those involved.

"I would like to say again how sorry I am personally for the impact this has had and we will never forget what happened. The safety of the park is our top priority and we are co-operating fully with the ongoing Health & Safety Executive investigation."
