Nine-year-old Ryan and his mother Alison have just been discharged from A&E. His ankle suffered some soft tissue damage, but nothing was broken.
Alison said: "He's fine and I can't believe we're out so quickly - we definitely came at the right time."
A&E departments across the country are having what some people call "a challenging" time and others say is a full-blown crisis.
Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham is a major trauma centre treating the most severely injured casualties from across the Midlands.
