Arthur Barrett fell from his bicycle on Monday 13 October on the way to play football with his friends.
He fell on to a low wall topped with decorative spikes, one of which fractured the orbital socket around his right eye.
Arthur – a promising young footballer who plays for Jersey Scottish – lost the sight in his eye, and had to spend two weeks in hospital in Southampton after surgery.His mother Trisha Barrett wants either the parish of St Helier or the Environment and Public Services Department to make sure that anyone with spiked railings outside their house has to make sure they are safe.’Arthur’s injuries are not just the result of him falling off his bike, his injuries are the result of a spiked railing being too low down.
It is the spikes that made him lose his eye, nothing else,’ she said.
She said she was not after financial compensation for Arthur’s injuries, but wanted to make sure no further accidents like this could happen.
