Update From Spanish translator: “The cops are not from national Spanish police force, they are from “Mossos d’Esquadra”, an autonomic police force from Catalonia.
The parents told press that the cops didn’t allowed ambulances coming to help their son, so they had to carry him to the hospital in a particular car.
The official statement from police officers says that the police officer hit the bag of one violent demonstrator who he was chasing, and after the hit on the bag, accidentally, his baton hit the head of the 13yo boy.
They also say that the second police officer hitting him was unaware about what just happened and he hit the boy again with a “defense hit” to cover himself. They don’t talk about the girl who was beaten with no reason. The family of the boy is going to press charges against the police officers, but they didn’t show any ID.”
Video Published to YouTube by Jordi Salvia was translated to English and said this:
“The child was transported to a hospital by private car, since, as reported by parents, Police prevented an ambulance agree to meet the child. Once at the hospital the child has received four stitches and was discharged immediately.”
The video was posted to Reddit by scruti. The title of the post was “This happened today in Spain. The boy is 13 and did not participate in the strike.”
