Fire service presents youngster with ‘get well’ card signed by his favourite players

Firefighters from South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue invited the youngster down to Cudworth station for a day to receive his ‘get well’ card signed by Manchester United players, Wayne Rooney, David De Gea and Ander Herrera.

Seven year old Brogan Goose was recently treated by Cudworth green watch for burns to his upper legs, after trying to put out a fire he had found in a field.

He was admitted to Barnsley Hospital, but has since been referred to Sheffield Children’s Burns unit where he may have to undergo a skin graft.

Brogan, his mum and his grandad were invited by Cudworth green watch to visit their station for the day. He spent the day observing various firefighter techniques, as well as taking a look around a fire engine and learning all about general fire safety.

Watch Manager of Cudworth green watch, Adam Bramhall said: “ An incident like this is a traumatic experience for anyone, never mind a youngster like Brogan. We are delighted that Man Utd were able to send a signed card, and it was great to see Brogan in good spirits down at the station despite his injuries. We wish Brogan a swift recovery and are confident that, after spending a day with us, he knows exactly who to call if there’s an emergency. We would also like to take this opportunity to remind the public that if they do come across a fire, get to a place of safety and ring 999”
