(ANSA) - Milan, October 18 - A six-year-old child is in critical condition in hospital after falling down a stairwell at a school in Milan. The child is thought to have fallen while climbing over the railing of the stairs at the height of the second floor at the Pirelli school in via Goffredo da Bussero.
    The child had left the classroom and was alone when he fell, sources said.
