Traumatic injuries rise as students go back to class
(LONDON, Ontario) – Cole Liley knows he’s lucky to be alive. The 23-year-old was attending a large street party in September of 2017 when his friends called him up to the second floor balcony of a house for a group photo. Cole took the quickest way up – he climbed the balcony. His decision to climb back down almost cost him his life.
LHSC’s Injury Prevention program is reminding students returning to post-secondary studies to know their ‘Stupid Line’ – that fine line between a smart and stupid risk – and offering tips to ensure fun celebrations don’t end in tragedy.
Jane Edwards, Injury Prevention Specialist for LHSC will be available for media interviews along with former trauma patient Cole Liley and his parents, Jeff and Candace Liley.
Date: Thursday, August 30, 2018
Time: 10:30am – 12:30pm
Location: LHSC’s Victoria Hospital
800 Commissioners Rd. E.
