San Diego, CA -
Children in Carlsbad ran for their lives last Friday after a gunman — whom a witness described as deranged — scaled a fence and opened fire. The heroic actions of a neighbor and a pair of construction workers finally put an end to the terrifying ordeal. The shooter reportedly leapt a fence to gain access to the campus at about 12:10 p.m. Police later confirmed that two children, who had been playing outside at recess at Kelly Elementary School, were “shot in the extremities” and had “non-life-threatening wounds.”
Lesson: Now is the time to improve your exterior activity monitoring practices! Ensure that an adequate number of staff are positioned along the perimeter of the activity. In addition to being equipped with two-way radios and First Aid supplies, staff should be clearly marked with reflective safety vests or arm bands.
