Athlete airlifted

By Garrett Eagan

Senior Kevin Flanagan, a Green Terror lacrosse player, was injured around 4:30 p.m. during practice on Tuesday, March 3.

The Westminster Fire Department responded along with Campus Safety. Flanagan had to be airlifted to a nearby hospital, in a scene that has become all too common on the Hill this academic year.

Flanagan had sustained a concussion during practice on Tuesday evening, in what junior Jason Stealy called a “freak accident.”

Mike Webster, director of Campus Safety, said that Trooper 3 Air Transport arrived at 5:10 p.m. According to Luke Stillson, director of Sports Information, Flanagan was air transported as a precautionary measure. This has become standard practice with any incident involving a head injury.

This is the third time a McDaniel student has been airlifted from campus due to an injury during an athletic practice.
