UPDATE: About the emergency response at Lincoln Park

4:51 PM: Several people have asked about a multi-unit SFD response at Lincoln Park this past hour. All we know so far is that it was dispatched as a report that an 11-year-old had “fallen 25 feet” near the north parking lot. The log shows that SFD medics are making a hospital transport. (added) Once medics started evaluating him, they said it was more like a 12-foot fall, from a tree, and that he was alert/conscious.

5:57 PM: SFD confirms to us that the 11-year-old fell an estimated 12 feet and was in stable condition when taken to Harborview.

    12’ fall! Ugh tree falls are the worst (in my experience). Hoping for a smooth recovery for that kiddo.

    Good to hear the positive prognosis.  The hook & ladder and another firetruck were already in the parking lot when I went by,  and I was then passed by a command unit truck and ambulance coming south on Fauntleroy

    Wonder if this was a fall inside of the Tree Cave near the south ball field? That thing is an attractive nuisance if I’ve ever seen one.

    Glad the kiddo is okay. I wonder what tree it was, most of them are much taller than 12 feet to read up for climbing. Theres one tree all the kids go play at near the ball field it’s like a large tree hours they always climb it. You can’t see unless you’re right there under the branches.

    Well they were at the tennis courts later around 10:45pm for an injured tennis player.
