Shatia Hill says her 7-year-old daughter, Brianna, broke her arm while playing on the playground at Webber Media Arts Academy in Pontiac.
“I was trying to jump to the bar on the monkey bars but I slipped and fell and broke my arm,” Brianna tells Fox 2’s Andrea Isom. She was helped to the office but, instead of calling 911, school staff members began calling the numbers of Brianna’s emergency contact list.
Shatia shares her frustration with Isom. “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.”
