Baldwin School Supt. Paul Dorathy couldn't say much Wednesday about a Tuesday helicopter ambulance ride for a Baldwin High School freshman except that the girl is doing fine.
"She's in school today attending her classes," Dorathy said. "That's what I can tell you. For everyone to know, she's fine."
The school district is bound by privacy laws, and Dorathy would not reveal any more about Tuesday's incident on the football practice field at Baldwin High around 2 p.m.
The student was participating in physical education class, jogging on the football field, when she passed out, he said. Her teacher sent for the school trainer and an ambulance. The ambulance crew determined the girl should be sent to Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo., via helicopter ambulance.
"I'm not going to judge the ambulance crew's choice," he said.
Dorathy said the girl returned to school Wednesday morning with a note from her doctor.
