Child hit by car, Manly Wharf

A ten-year-old boy has made a lucky escape from major injury after he was hit by a car outside Manly Wharf on Belgrave and the Esplanade this afternoon.

NSW Police confirmed that at 3.15pm today, Monday 29 August 2022, emergency services responded to reports of a 10-year-old boy being hit by a car.

NSW Ambulance paramedics treated the boy at the scene and confirmed said in a formal statement that he had sustained minor injuries but as a precaution was airlifted to Sydney Children’s Hospital via the Careflight Helicopter. Those present at the scene, however, say he was eventually taken by road ambulance.

As investigations continue, anyone who witnessed the crash or has available dash cam footage, is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
