Injury From a Fall?
September 01, 2007
A 5-year-old girl was brought to her pediatrician after a "fall" 30 minutes before her arrival. The injury occurred in her home; she fell while straddling the back of a chair as she reached for something on a table. Her grandmother, who was serving as the child's foster parent, and an unrelated witness provided the initial history. The child independently confirmed the story provided by the adults.
