LifeStar responding to life-threatening injury at Home Depot

June 3, 2012


A LifeStar air ambulance responded to a life-threatening injury to a 47-year-old man at Home Depot, 1901 W. 31st St., Sunday afternoon, according to Douglas County Emergency dispatchers.

The 911 call came in about 3:15 p.m., but first responders had little information about the injury.

Emergency crews reported the man was unconscious with facial injuries.

"It is unknown how the injuries occurred," said Eve Tolefree, a Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical spokeswoman.

The man was taken to Kansas University Medical Center, but Tolefree said she could not provide any additional details.

Check for updates as they become available.

Sure be nice to have an update on what happened sometime 4 hours after the accident.

Shelving fall in the store, parking lot accident, disgruntleded employee attack, whatever?

If that is their motivation, why would they even post this story in the first place? Sure, I have my issues with the LJWorld, but I just can't see how you can make that assumption from this story.

well at-a-boy LJworld, guess we'll have to watch channel 4 or 5 tonight to get the WHOLE story.

Amen to that. It's not so much the newspaper as it is the law enforcement or government. Lot more crime here then ever posted in any paper. Trust me, I know

Two things:

1) A call on the police scanner does not necessarily equal a crime.

2) LJWorld has no requirement to report every street fight that breaks out.

I'll admit, there are times when I wonder why they post a certain story, but fail to post another, but I don't go so far as to think it's a huge police/newspaper conspiracy.

If there aren't updates it's usually because we haven't been able to get any new info. We make the calls to the appropriate people but sometimes with shift changes with emergency personnel the info. Doesn't come as soon as we'd like. Shaun

Pywacket....If you really want to know what calls the police are responding to and what action had been taken, listen to an online scanner or go to the PD's website that lists all of the calls within the last 48 is the link

People that post anonymously and then demand to know more about the story are just nosy and crass. If it doesn't involve you, stay out of it. Yes, I know that others will want this post removed or want to tell me that everything that happens in Lawrence directly impacts on all. Just because John Dunne wrote it (No Man Is An Island) doesn't make it so.

You're right - how dare I request that the local news paper cover things that would be considered local news? How nosy and crass of me!
