School Uses Ice Cream Sandwiches to Treat Student’s Broken Arm

We don’t always scream for ice cream.

After Brianna Hill, 7, broke her arm while playing on the monkey bars at Webber Media Arts Academy in Pontiac, Michigan, the school responded by treating her with ice cream sandwiches.

Instead of calling 911, school officials went through Brianna’s emergency contact list and put ice cream sandwiches on the arm because there was no ice on hand.

Brianna’s mother was stunned with the school’s behavior:

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.

I have no idea why they thought that was acceptable. I mean, honestly, it was totally bad judgement on everybody in the school. When I call the school, they’re like, ‘Oh I wasn’t there.’ ‘Oh I wasn’t there.’ Everyone wants to throw each other under the bus instead of taking responsibility.”

Eventually, Brianna’s aunt picked her up and brought her to the hospital.

Brianna’s mother, meanwhile, says she will try and find a new school for her daughter.

The school board has also vowed to look into the matter to find out just what happened.
