Rampaging buffaloes put several children in hospital

Several children were taken to hospital on Thursday after two were knocked down by buffaloes and others fell as they dodged the animals.

Police said they received a report in the morning about two buffaloes charging through Pui O on Lantau.

One of the two children struck by the buffaloes, a girl, suffered a stomach injury and was reported to have been unconscious at one point.

Eight children were said to have ended up on the ground after running out of the animals’ way.
