One Tough 13 Year Old
A 13-year-old African American male came in by EMS for altered mental status. The history was very vague. All they knew was that he got hit in the head and didn't really respond after that.
He was no more than 5 feet tall and 100 pounds....tiny little guy.
Mom arrived and said that she didn't know what happened. She said he spends most of the time in the streets, smokes marijuana daily, and only drinks alcohol on weekends! He also had a big tatoo on his arm that said "I Don't Play." Remember....this kid was 13!!! Hell I am from the hood myself but don't remember any 13-year-olds this hard
He ended up just having a bad concussion. He was transferred to the local children's hospital where he can teach the other kiddos how to keep it real.
