Family of Girl Killed In Golf Accident Thanks Medical Professionals

OREM, Utah – After a 6-year-old girl died Monday in a tragic accident at a golf course, family members thanked the medical professionals that attempted to save her life.

“At one point, while I stood in the hall watching the nurses, doctors, techs, RT, pharmacist, phlebotomist, and others, the terror and devastation left my body and for a brief moment time slowed and I was able to watch in awe as these incredible heroes did everything in their power to keep this little girl alive,” said Aria Hill’s aunt Elizabeth Toone in a Facebook post. 

Toone said she was a Pediatric Advance Life Support instructor for Intermountain Health Care, and she watched in awe as a team of medical professionals got to work to help her niece.

“Their procedures and technique were unparalleled. They knew the algorithms by heart and followed them to perfection,” she said.

There were 17 men and women in the room with Aria at one point, Toone said.

“They are the toughest breed of healthcare professionals, they kept their emotions in check and did what they were trained to do,” she said. “But after it was over and she passed later that evening, little Aria broke through their tough exteriors and they mourned with us. GOD BLESS those men and women.”

“We know they did everything in their power to help her and we are forever grateful to them for that. They are the best of the best,” Toone said in an email.

Aria was remembered by family and friends for her happy disposition, mischievous smile, and big heart. Her uncle said she cherished her golf outings with her dad.
