Teen girl airlifted to hospital after allegedly being stabbed by classmate

A TEENAGE girl has been airlifted to hospital in a serious condition after allegedly being stabbed by a classmate at a school in South Australia.

Renmark High School was placed into lockdown around 2.40pm on Tuesday after a dispute between an 18-year-old student and 17-year-old escalated.

Police and paramedics were called to the school and treated the 17-year-old female victim at the scene.


She was then taken to the Berri Hospital before being flown to the Royal Adelaide Hospital, where she remains in a serious but stable condition.

The 18-year-old woman was arrested at the school and last night charged with aggravated assault causing serious harm.

Police say she will also be flown to the Royal Adelaide Hospital for the “treatment of a medical condition.”

It is expected a bedside hearing will be conducted today.
