#helicopter transport

Student in Murrysville Pa  at Franklin regional high school suffered a head injury in physical education playing volley ball.  Medics in the interest of “abundance of caution”  had him transported by helicopter.  In this instance,  possibly erring on the side of caution was a good thing.  Potential brain injury is a critical concern.  Other questions to consider:  Time and distance to critical care and the ability of the facility to deal with this kind of injury.  If all that is in line, it is good the medics had the ability and courage to make the right call. .
