London Ambulance Service statement – significant incident in Hainault on 30.04.2024

Director of Ambulance Operations for London Ambulance Service, Darren Farmer said: “Our thoughts are with all of those impacted by this morning’s incident and their families.

“Shortly before 7am, we began to receive 999 calls to our control room suggesting there had been a stabbing in the vicinity of Hainault underground station.

“We dispatched multiple resources including ambulance crews, specialist critical care paramedics and London’s air ambulance.

“We declared a significant incident and set up a dedicated special operations centre which allowed our other control rooms to continue to respond to the rest of London.

“London Ambulance Service worked hard to ensure that the patients involved got the treatment they needed as quickly as possible.

“Our teams treated 5 patients with a variety of injuries before taking all of them to hospital. Sadly, despite the very best efforts of our teams, a 13-year-old boy died at hospital.

“I’d like to pay tribute to LAS colleagues who attended this scene at risk to themselves and to the courage of the police officers injured while protecting the public.

“I’d also like to thank all our emergency services colleagues who worked alongside us as we responded to this incident. Once again, our thoughts are with the families of those who are hurt, and on behalf of everyone at London Ambulance Service, we send our deepest condolences to the friends and family of the young boy who has sadly died.”
