Our Boston lawyers have discovered that a 12-year-old boy was airlifted to Children’s Hospital for treatment of the injuries he sustained at the Whitman town pool. At approximately 12:30 on Monday afternoon, the boy reportedly slipped into the pool, striking his back on the pool ladder in the process.
Following the impact, the young boy complained of severe lower back pain and a numb sensation in his lower extremities. The Whitman firefighters that responded to the 911 call were able to stabilize the child in the deep end of the pool before he was airlifted to the hospital.
