This story was mentioned in Canada this morning by an FM radio station which repeatedly poked fun at the way the situation was handled. What was the
A Detroit school is under fire this week from mom Shatia Hill, whose daughter, Brianna, broke her arm while on the playground at Webber Media Arts
Academy in Pontiac...
Instead of opting to call professional help/911 the school went through the child's contact list instead.
Meanwhile Brianna says her arm was in a lot of pain and the school didn't have any ice to put on the injury, so they brought out ice cream sandwiches
The child's mom is obviously not happy adding "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".
Keeping in mind that this is in Detroit and that wait times may be significantly longer than other places, one has to wonder if the school did the
right thing by using ice cream sandwiches as an improvised ice pack. Then again it becomes hard not to ignore the jokes about the American health care
system and how this Detroit school did not have ice when it was needed the most.
"I have no idea why they thought that was acceptable. I mean, honestly, it was totally bad judgement on everybody in the school. When I call the
school, they're like, 'Oh I wasn't there.' 'Oh I wasn't there.' Everyone wants to throw each other under the bus instead of taking responsibility,"
