Post-Common Entrance celebrations were marred at the Hilton Barbados Resort after an inflated slide raft collapsed, causing injuries to at least one adult and 13 children.
The incident occurred about 3:20 p.m. when children at the top of the tent were sent crashing to the ground from about 20 feet in the air.
Most of those who fell remained motionless on the ground for a few minutes before ambulances arrived.
At least ten ambulances including one from the Barbados Defence Force responded to the scene along with the Barbados Fire Service and Royal Barbados Police Force. (HG)
