Wall Collapse – Pupil Dies at School

A 12 year old pupil has died at school in Edinburgh following the collapse of a free standing wall.

What Happened?

Keane Wallis-Bennett was pronounced dead at the scene after sustaining fatal injuries at Liberton High School, Edinburgh.

13 year old classmate Devon Blyth had informed staff some months earlier that there was an unstable modesty wall between showers in the girls’ changing rooms.

Miss Blyth said:

“I told staff months ago that the wall had moved, but nothing was done. I think
they should have done something about it. I reported it, about two
months ago, that the wall had moved when I leaned on it.

“The member of staff said it would be fine. Nothing else was done about it.
The wall is almost the length of the changing room and it
separated the showers. It was the same wall.”

The incident took place shortly before 10:00am yesterday morning. Head Teacher Stephen King informed the parents of the other 650 Liberton High School pupils via a text message that read:

“Important! Accident at school. A pupil has sadly died.
Her parents are aware. No-one else is injured.”

Tributes from school friends and well-wishers have flooded social media, and flowers are being left at the school. The school will remain closed for the remainder of the week.
