Note: This is truly a tragedy. An 8 year-old dead over a minor bike fall? No way! How much you want to bet that the flesh-eating bacteria was picked up in the emergency room of the hospital. How much do you want to bet that this emergency room treats illegal aliens. This is where an investigation should begin!
Like most 8-year-old boys, Liam Flanagan was used to getting a few scrapes and bruises here and there — nothing major.
So when the second-grader took a tumble off his bike on the driveway of his family’s farm in Pilot Rock, Ore., and suffered a large gash on his thigh he didn’t panic. His mom, Sara Hebard, rushed him to the emergency room, where he was given seven stitches.
“It wasn’t a big deal. It wasn’t a bad one. It just needed a few stitches is all, that’s it,” she told Fox 12. “And he was taking it like a trooper.”
