Ontario Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth ..My heart goes out to all the family and friends of Josiah Grant. This was such a terrible accident that took the life of a young and talented kid. What a tragic accident. The high-jump death of Josiah Grant has left us all asking ourselves..how could this have happened?
Josiah Grant was just 17 years old and was from Smiths Falls, Ontario. Sadly, Josiah died last Wednesday at Kingston General Hospital a day after the high jump accident when he missed the landing on the safety pad. It was reported that he landed awkwardly and suffered some “scrapes and bruises”, but remained conscious. The 2 teachers administered first aid and called Josiah’s father who brought him to a Kingston hospital , where Josiah lapsed into a coma. He never came out of it.
This accident calls into question the safety practices that have been established for students. The School Board has an obligation to ensure the safety of its students. Accidents like this should never happen. My heart goes out to everyone who knew Josiah….
