Helmet-less Skateboarder Injures Head, Requires MedEvac to Hospital

The 18-year old was not wearing protective head gear at the time of the accident, police said.

Multiple first responders were summoned to the aid of an 18-year old man who suffered a serious skateboarding accident on Twin Brooks Court in Holmdel Township Monday night. 

Connor A. Thomas, 18, of Allen Street in Rumson fell from his skateboard and struck his head. He was not wearing a helmet, according to police who responded to the 911 call at 6:49 p.m.

Based on Thuman's condition, Holmdel Ptl. Michael Dowens requested paramedics.

The MONOC paramedics arrived and requested a MedEvac helicopter to transport Thuman to Jersey Shore Medical Center where he was treated for his injuries.

Holmdel First Aid transported Thuman to the landing zone, and Holmdel Fire Company secured the area for the NJ State Police Northstar Flight Medics.

Yes that's all I was saying . In NJ If we provide a properly built area for our kids to use. We can reduce injuries involving automoblies and children . With any sports there are risks football is more dangerous then skateboarding , but rarley makes headlines when children get hurt . They are all children doing what they love. NO parent ever wants this to happen but it does . Me and my kids pray for a quick recovery for him and his family to get through this .

Rule of Thumb: Wheels on the bottom; helmet on top. Anyone, riding anything, should always wear a helmet. Head injuries are for keeps. This is the reason that I had a problem with the age clause. It has to include all ages.
