Newly appointed Essex TV chief executive Matthew C. Martino was overcome with emotion and poured his heart out to the family involved in yesterday’s (Saturday 26th) bouncy castle tragedy in the Harlow Town Park.
The Harlow resident called it ‘A sad day for Harlow’ and broke down during an interview with Heart Essex insisting that he has halted all operational activity at Essex TV on Easter Sunday out of respect for the little girl.
The girl died after the inflatable was swept away by high winds at an Easter fun fair.
The youngster involved, thought to be aged around seven, was taken to hospital but sadly could not overcome her injuries.
It is the second fatal incident at a fun fair in Easter within 18 months
The girl, who is believed to be aged 7 and from Norwich, was taken to Princess Alexandra Hospital by ambulance just before 5pm after sustaining serious injuries whilst on a bouncy castle. She sadly died a few hours later.
