Does anyone know if this child was OK? I saw the life flight helicopter in the Acension church parking lot.

It would be nice if there was follow up on stories like this. Usually there is not. I consider it a media failure, or perhaps laziness. We should know what happened to the young boy and what the cause was. We the driver held accountable? Are the police doing there jobs? Media sure isn't. I will remain jaded until proven otherwise.
