BB

BB raced motocross and always wore top-of-the-line helmet and safety gear, but at a competition he crashed and fell on his head. He was unconscious and had seizures. The emergency flight team stabilized BB and transported him to a Level I Pediatric Trauma Center where a pediatric neurosurgeon explained that BB had a brain bleed and would require a few weeks in the hospital.

After months of rehabilitation and pediatric care, BB was released for sports and now competes in bicycling and plays soccer. BB’s family urges others to understand the need for more pediatric trauma education for EMS, paramedics, nurses and emergency caregivers so they feel confident about caring for an injured child.
