I served as an elementary after school and summer recreational program teacher prior to being a school principal for 5 years and a school superintendent for 26 years. During my time as a school principal and superintendent, I was responsible for the oversight of school programs both during the day and after normal school hours. In this case, it appears evident that a reasonable standard of care and supervision was not taken to ensure the safety of the children participating in this activity. Not only was there no adult present at the time of the incident, there appears to be great negligence in allowing the goal post to be in this location while children were present and exercising. At the very least, all adult supervisors should have current and up to date CPR certification. Upon suffering such an injury, the child should have been made comfortable in his/her current location and the adult on duty should have called the paramedics or 911 for immediate assistance. The child should not have been moved under the circumstances described. The child should have remained as immobile as possible until assistance arrived. The supervisors should have also called the parents following the call for medical assistance. I am currently an expert witness in a similar ongoing case involving a child severely injured while participating in a school-sponsored activity in the gym. The school did not have proper safety equipment and, the teacher lacked formal training and had no first aid or CPR certification.
