Yasir Hussain Age
Yasir Hussain was 10-years-old.
‘I was told those trainers were the ones that he wanted and that’s why they got them for him,’ she said. Fellow pupils told West Midlands Police that Yasir, from Ward End, was playing goalkeeper when he went to ‘save a ball and hit his head on a wall.’
He was assessed by school first aiders after a raised bump appeared on the right side of his head during a lunchtime break. A 999 call was made by deputy headteacher Samara Azam and an ambulance was initially sent to the school.
After 90-minutes no paramedics had arrived and the same member of staff made a second 999 call after his condition ‘improved’ when he began to communicate more, the hearing was told.
The call handler for West Midlands Ambulance Service apologised to the teacher as the service was ‘extremely busy’ with a surge in calls that day due to the pandemic. Both 999 calls were played during proceedings.
She sought advice from her supervisor and a paramedic before cancelling the ambulance after Yasir’s mum Nazia Parveen said she would take her son home.
But his mother said had she received a fuller picture of his condition, she ‘would have made a different decision.’
First-aider Zahira Mabine, who was stationed in the playground at the time of the incident, said Yasir’s large trainers ‘could have been one of the factors’ which led him to fall.
According to Ms Mabine, Yasir had been bought the shoes because he had asked for them, but it was unclear why they were so big.
‘I was cleaning Yasir’s legs as they were quite muddy I noticed his trainers were too big for him,’ she told the inquest. ‘I mentioned this to both of them. I was told those trainers were the ones that he wanted and that’s why they got them for him,’ she said.
‘I said it’s really important he has the correct shoe size because they could cause him to have a fall.’ She believed ‘it could have been one of the factors’ which led him to fall, the hearing was told.
Describing Yasir’s appearance after assessing him, Ms Mabine said: ‘Initially, when I saw him he looked quite pale – his face and lips looked pale. I got him to sit on a first aid chair.
