Police continue their appeal for further witnesses to come forward after a child was left in a critical condition after being thrown from the 10th floor at the Tate Modern.

The six year old boy was thrown from the tenth floor viewing platform of the Tate Modern in Bankside, SE1 yesterday afternoon (4 August).

He remains in a stable, but critical condition in hospital with his family, who continue to be supported by police officers.

A 17-year-old male was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. He remains in police custody.

DCI John Massey, investigating, said: “We are providing around the clock support to the little boy’s family as they wait for more news on his condition and our priority remains to determine what led to yesterday’s events.

“We are grateful for the support of the public, some of whom detained the male arrested in the immediate aftermath of the incident. He was arrested by officers very quickly afterward.

“This was a truly shocking incident, and people will understandably be searching for answers.

“At the moment, this is being treated as an isolated event with no distinct or apparent motive. There is no link between the victim and male arrested.

“It would have been incredibly distressing to watch, and it may be that you left Tate Modern very quickly after. If you have not yet spoken to us about what you saw, please contact us without delay.

“My team is also very keen to talk to you if you witnessed a male whose behaviour seemed out of place, suspicious or worrying, in the hour or two before the incident in or near the gallery. It may be that this is something which has only just come back to you. If so, please still make that call to the investigation team.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the incident room on 0208 721 4868 or @MetCC quoting CAD 4660/4August.
