Young child airlifted to hospital after being trapped under car suffers minor injuries.

A young boy airlifted to hospital after being trapped under a car this morning suffered only minor injuries.

The four-year-old child was hit while on a scooter in Haddenham at around 9am.

Emergency services were called and firefighters spent around 15 minutes using airbags to lift the green Rover up and release the boy.

An off-duty doctor who was passing by tended to the boy at the scene while he was trapped.

Road closures were put in place while an air ambulance landed to rush the boy to hospital.

It took off from the Church Way scene at around 10.15am and airlifted him to the trauma centre at John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, but he is only thought to have sustained cuts and bruises.
