There were worrying scenes at the Downings GAA grounds in Donegal last night when a young footballer had to be airlifted to hospital after suffering a fall.

The girl was playing in an U16 game when the incident happened at around 9pm. According to the Irish Times, the girl hurt her neck after falling awkwardly and could not move.

An ambulance was called and the Rescue 118 helicopter arrived on the scene a short time later to airlift her to Letterkenny University Hospital. Her condition is still unknown.
