Similar thing happened with my friend's son, who was 3 years old. He had a head injury and the ambulance took the scenic route to the hospital, which was not prepared to handle his injury. He was then air lifted to another hospital, where he died. My friend sued them for millions, though not without tremendous difficulty. Now he and his family live in an enormous house on the far side of town. Any time the subject is brought up, which always seems kind of awkward, he always says he'd take it all back for his son to have lived.
