On July 1, 2021, a young child suffered a serious accidental injury and was transported to a local hospital by ambulance. While at the hospital, the Emergency Room staff, hospital Chaplain and a social worker were attempting to get the victim’s mother de-escalated without the mother responding to any of their attempts. Howell County Detective Buddy Thompson responded to the Emergency Room and was able to de-escalate the mother and have her focus on her breathing and remain positive during this crisis, providing emotional support and compassion for the victim’s mother.
