Girl who fell 14ft at Chessington World of Adventures making "small improvements"
A girl who fell 14 feet from the queue of a Chessington World of Adventures theme park ride is said to be making "small improvements" three weeks after the fall.
Jessica Blake, four, from Sheerness on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent suffered fractured ribs and a fractured skull after falling from the Tomb Blaster queue on Thursday, June 7.
She was taken to St George’s Hospital in Tooting in a critical state where she has remained for three-weeks now.
On the day of the fall she was treated by the resort's medical staff before being taken to hospital in an ambulance.
A St George’s Healthcare NHS Trust spokesperson said: "Jessica remains at St George's Hospital, where she is making small improvements."
Hundreds of well-wishers have continued to leave messages of support for Jessica and her family on social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) are currently investigating the incident and the ride has remained closed since.
The HSE has the power to issue guidance or information to businesses, to withdraw approvals, issue formal cautions or even issue prosecutions.
