Toddler left screaming in pain as Asda security gates SMASH into his head while mum pushes him into store

A mother has told of the horrific moment she was shopping in a branch of Asda1 with her one-year-old son when he was left screaming in pain as metal security gates smashed into his head.

Paige Thorpe was walking into her local branch of the high street giant with her one-year-old toddler Oscar in a pram. The pair were about to start their weekly shop on Wednesday morning and were walking through metal security gates when, she claims, they suddenly slammed shut as Oscar’s pram was passing through. Paige claims the gates at the Accrington Asda smashed into little Oscar’s head leaving him screaming in agony.

Baby Oscar was left with a bruise on his forehead

The 25-year-old mum said: “I was in total shock as you don’t expect something like this to happen.

“Someone had just gone through the gates ahead of us so they were open but as we walked through they slammed shut, cracking on Oscar’s head.

“He screamed out in pain and I rushed to pick him up and check he was okay . A bruise was already forming on his forehead in the few seconds it took for me to get him.”

Paige, who says she does her weekly shop in the same store, claims she rushed to go and find the nearest staff member, who asked her if she wanted a first aider. The store also asked the mother if she wanted an ambulance or help in getting Oscar to hospital but Paige told them she did not think it was necessary and that a cold compress should be enough.

His mum said Oscar has not been the same since hitting his head

The mum claims she waited for more than 5 minutes for a first aider who then asked another member of staff to hold ice on Oscar’s head to help the swelling. Paige said: “I could not believe it too so long for them to come and help us . No-one but the security guard we first went to seemed that concerned.

“The staff member then handed the ice over to me and I held it on Oscar’s head for as I walked through the store.”

The child later taken too A&E after his mother initially declined an offer from Asda, but his parents told to monitor him

The young mother then completed her shopping but was aware Oscar was not himself throughout – barely speaking and appearing sleepy. As she was leaving, she saw the same security guard who asked how it happened before allegedly claiming it might be due to Oscar’s size and the gates not ‘seeing’ him. Once home, the mother and her partner continued monitoring Oscar before dashing to A&E in the evening after being advised to do so by 111.

Paige said: “We have been told to just monitor him but its two days later now and he is still not himself.

It is claimed the accident happened in Asda in Accrington

“I can’t understand why these gates did not have any working sensors that picked up Oscar was there and the response we had was just unacceptable.

“I complained straight away but have not had anything back from Asda yet .

It’s a disgrace.”

A spokesman for Asda said: “At Asda, we take the safety of our customers extremely seriously and are investigating how the incident happened.

“We hope to be in contact with the family soon and send our very best wishes to Oscar for a speedy recovery.

Cricket Australia assure fans over security for Boxing Day Test

Last Updated: 23/12/16 8:56am

Melbourne Cricket Ground, which hosts the traditional Boxing Day Test

Cricket Australia has assured fans that security will be tight for the traditional Boxing Day Test in Melbourne. Australia will begin Monday’s second Test against Pakistan with a one-nil lead in the three-match series, which follows a foiled terror plot targeting prominent sites in Melbourne. Counter-terrorism police and Australia’s domestic spy agency in Victoria recently conducted overnight raids on homes in the suburbs of Melbourne where they arrested six men and a woman. With obvious concerns over the historic fixture, which starts on December 26, Cricket Australia’s chief executive James Sutherland said: “Our security team is in contact with the relevant authorities to ensure we have the appropriate level of security at the Boxing Day Test and other cricket matches being held around the country.

“The safety and security of our fans, players and officials attending any cricket match is our number one priority. “We applaud Victoria Police for their efforts this morning in neutralising the threat and we will continue to work with the relevant authorities to ensure the highest security standards and protocols are maintained.” Australia’s Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has praised counter-terrorism police for foiling the ‘Islamist terrorist plot’ planning to target iconic locations on Christmas Day1. He said: “This is one of the most substantial terrorist plots that have been disrupted over the last several years. “They have been thwarted . They are in custody .

They are no longer a threat to Australians’ security.

“What these criminals seek to do is to kill, but they also seek to frighten us, to cower us into abandoning our Australian way of life, they want to frighten and divide Australians.”
