Jameson Laird is a rambunctious 5-year-old who enjoys running, playing and climbing. Recently, Jameson was climbing a favorite set of monkey bars when he slipped, cutting his face on the way down.

After several stitches, Jameson was released and glad to be headed home and feeling better. “I was scared, very much, but I felt better after,” Jameson explains. Would he recommend a visit to the Mid County ER if his friends slipped too?
