Ambulance takes child with head injury to hospital

September 05, 2011

HALFWAY — A child who suffered a head injury from playing football at Marty Snook Park on Monday afternoon was taken to Meritus Medical Center, according to the 911 supervisor with Washington County Emergency Services.

A Maryland State Police helicopter was called to pick up the child, but emergency officials weren't sure whether the helicopter would make it to the park due to bad weather, the 911 supervisor said.

 After several minutes, the call for the helicopter was canceled, the supervisor said. An ambulance took the child to the hospital.

The park was hosting the opening weekend of the Washington County Junior Football League.

The incident was called in at 2:39 p.m., the 911 supervisor said.
