In one week, three local teenagers were severely hurt under the Friday Night Lights.
Ramon Oros is recovering from surgery at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. The 17-year-old suffered a severe head injury during Friday's game for Pateros High School in Okanogan County.
David Young is in a halo brace after a routine tackle for the Adna Pirates. He fractured two vertebrae in his neck.
And worst of all, Kenney Bui, a teen playing football for Evergreen High School died Monday after suffering a head injury in last week's game at Highline.
Kenney's death forces us to act and refocus our attention on the safety of all our kids when they suit up for a sport. It has many wondering if it's safe to play.
These tragedies do not mean parents should yank their kids from sports, nor are they doing so. It doesn't mean we should wrap our kids in bubble wrap either.
Instead, we want to talk about what is being done to keep our young athletes safe: the law, the protocol, how to manage injuries when they are hurt, and make sure we are holding accountable the people we put in charge to lead them.
Q13 FOX put together a panel of experts to give you the information and tools you need to keep your family safe. We are focusing on the facts, talking about the risks, and answering questions you submitted about sports safety -- not just for football, but for all sports.
