Why didn’t they call 911??
Girl With Broken Arm Treated With Ice Cream
Via HuffPo reports:
A Michigan charter school has come under fire after icing a child’s broken arm with frozen treats and failing to call 911.
Seven-year-old Brianna Hill was playing on the school’s playground last week when she fell and broke her arm. When she was taken to the school office, Sarah J. Webber Media Arts Academy officials did not call 911; instead, they went through her emergency contact list, according to My Fox Detroit.
“They should have immediately called 911. What if she was going into shock? What if she could have had a concussion? Brain damage could have been done and they’re just sitting there, calling people on the phone,” Shatia Hill, Brianna’s mother, told the outlet.
Officials also treated the injury with ice cream bars, while they waited for Brianna’s aunt to pick her up, according to the station. The school had run out of regular ice.
While the school is not doing any interviews on the incident, a school press release obtained by The Huffington Post says that officials acted “within accepted protocols.”
