Sunday evenings in Tree Tops is usually a pretty quiet and peaceful time, but not this weekend...Early Sunday evening, July 25th, Flight For Life, landed in Tree Tops Park. Arriving to pick up an injured cyclist, the med flight landed right in the middle of Tree Tops Subdivision, while neighbors, police and firefighters stood by.
According to local news http://www.todaystmj4.com/news/local/51775892.html, a 12 year old rode his bike through a stop sign and was hit by an oncoming car. From the time the cyclist was hit, the number of onlookers grew. The first helped as best possible and called 911. By the time the med flight arrived, more neighbors were on the scene, but close access was limited by fire and police.
While it might be nice to get together and visit with neighbors, this isn't the way we'd like to do it! Our neighborhood park has seen kids playing, the annual Spring Egg Hunt, and now Flight For Life. Hopefully the latter won't happen ever again.
