How sad! I am glad she received swift medical attention & I hope that she recovers quickly.

I must ask, however, how this rates as news? Because the student journalist was there? I helped a child who fell off of his bike at the Palo Alto Library last week. Should I have called The Weekly to report it? I truly don't mean to take away from this woman's injury, or the woman who fell rushing to help her. But I still question the newsworthiness of this.
