A 6-year-old girl at Barkers Mill Elementary School in Clarksville had a pencil in her hand while walking. Her shoe laces became untied. When she tripped, the girl fell on the pencil point, puncturing her trachea.
The nearest EMS station, No. 26, is less than three miles away. An ambulance should have been there in a matter of minutes.
But it took 25 minutes for an EMS crew to arrive at the school.
When seconds count, help is only 25 minutes away!
