Boy’s Throat Cut At School; Officials Don’t Call 911

Post by Admin on Fri Jun 03, 2011 10:53 pm

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – The parents of a Natomas school district student were furious after learning school officials didn’t call 911 after their son cut his throat at school.

Todd and Sonya Gomez said their 7-year-old son tripped and fell into a fire hydrant while running at Witter Ranch Elementary School, opening up a deep gash underneath his chin.

“When I got there, he was drenched in blood from his neck down to his waist,” Sonya said. “He weighs 54 pounds.”

The parents said the school principal never called paramedics, but instead called the boy’s parents while the student sat by himself in the nurse’s office. Todd Gomez said there was “absolutely no nurse” on duty at the school.

First of all, school officials are not medical experts. According to the article, there wasn't a nurse on duty. However, it does not take a "Rocket Scientist" to figure out that the child required emergency attention. His throat was cut and blood was gushing out. The first step is to call 9-1-1. SMH

Ameeen!!!! They should know better. The child fell on a fire hydrant. Even if the cuts were not deep, he would probably need a Tetanus shot to prevent Lockjaw. In addition, since there was so much blood, he could have punctured an artery and bled out.
