A TEENAGER was rescued via an upstairs bedroom window following a domestic incident at a house in Nelson Close, Sompting.

Ambulance staff feared the 18-year-old had seriously injured his spine and called the fire service to help get him out of the building safely.

He was brought out through the first-floor window on a spinal board by firefighters using an aerial ladder platform and taken to hospital.

A teenage girl was arrested in connection with the incident.
