Mesa
Fire Department Rescuers say a 9-year old boy will be okay after
slipping and falling from the side of a 10-foot high diving board at
Shepherd Junior High school onto the concrete below. Fire Spokesman
Forrest Smith says the young lifeguards did a stellar job keeping the
boy calm and stable until help could arrive. 

 

Smith
says that they could not tell at the scene if the boy broke any bones
but they are pretty sure he did not suffer any serious head injury.
Smith says the boy was airlifted to Phoenix Children’s Hospital for
treatment.
