Summer-like Weather Brings Summer-like Mishaps Around Metro Kansas City

emperatures in the mid to upper 80's around the MetroRegion today have brought people outdoors- yes- even in this computer/video/electronic game era- and some of those people have suffered from the outdoor experience.

An 18-year-old female was hurt at Lake Jacomo after she fell 25-30 feet off a ledge and into the lake while "cliff-diving" with friends.

That happened at an unknown time before the 6:35 p.m. call for Prairie Township EMS. The lady's injuries were non life-threatening but possibly dehabilitating as she was taken to a south KC-MO .

A Raytown MO EMS unit is heard running hot to the same south KC-MO medical trauma center around 6:50 p.m. after picking up a male who "fell 22-feet from a tree" in that west-central Jackson County city.

This patient's injuries were life-threatening with no other details on this mishap..

Another male suffered serious injuries in an ATV incident in west-central Cass County MO..

That crash occurred around 7 p.m. on a farm in the 10100 block of East 260th Street-and the victim suffered possible head and other injuries- according to West Peculiar EMS- and he was taken to the same south KC-MO hospital as the previous patients.

I can't forget the motorcyclists out tonight.

Two of their brethren took an unexpected ambulance ride to Centerpoint Med Center around 7:30 p.m. after "laying-down" their cycle in far Eastern KC-MO.

The 20-year-old male and his 18-year-old female passenger suffered mostly road-rash and some aches and pains.
