Recent Medical Call
On Tuesday February 14, 2012 at 2:38 PM Brookline Public Safety Dispatch received a 911 call from a resident on Dwight Street. The caller was a ten year old child who said his baby sister was not breathing. The calm brother was able to get the phone to his mother. Shortly before the call the one year old child had fallen in the kitchen and struck her head causing her to go unconscious. The Dispatcher began giving emergency medical procedures to the mother. The mother was instructed to place the child on the floor and within seconds the child can be heard in the background crying. At this time it is unclear what the medical condition of the child was. When EMS arrived the child was breathing and conscious. The child was transported to a local hospital, treated and released.
