On New Year’s Day, a family went out to use a new sled. Going down a hill, the family’s 10 year old son hit a bump, flipped over and hit his head, knocking him unconscious. It took a while for him to wake up, and he is still having problems related to the injury.
Headaches, hearing loss and slurred speech were a few of the complications that might have been avoided with use of a helmet. Because of this, the family is now advocating use of helmets in activities like sledding so that the same thing does not happen to other families.
