A 10-year-old girl was airlifted from Wildwood Park in Thousand Oaks after suffering a seizure and head injury Sunday afternoon.
According to a statement issued by the Ventura County Sheriff's Department Monday, the girl fell as a result of the seizure and the fall, in turn, lead to the head injury.
First on scene were units from the county fire department, which were able to drive most of the way to the girl via dirt roads before having to hike the rest of the way down a short single-track trail. Due to her location and her injuries, they decided it would be best to call in a helicopter to a medical center, the report said.
Sheriff's Air Squad 8 responded and Flight Paramedic Robert Seebre and Crew Chief John Braganza her hoisted down to the girl, who was secured and hoisted into the helicopter and flown immediately to Los Robles Hospital, according to the sheriff's statement.
