MONROE, La -- - A bad accident for a young girl in Monroe, is causing parents to think twice about safety.
It scares me to know that dangers like that are out there and there's nothing protecting our kid.
Bailey Blackstock, a sophomore at West Ouachita High School, is being treated at university health in Shreveport after sustaining serious injuries to her head and back.
Family and friends now sending thoughts and prayers on Facebook.
When resident, Kelly Coats, heard the news she was concerned about the safety of more kids in the future.
It says that she just slipped and fell but that's just you know concerning to me that she can just slip and fall so easily and get hurt like that.
The big question is could this accident have been avoided?
Witnesses say Bailey was hanging out with two friends in this area behind a levee when she slipped and fell.
