7-year-old playground-accident victim identified

The Columbian

The 7-year-old girl who died Friday two days after she reportedly sustained a head injury on the Fisher’s Landing Elementary school playground has been identified.

Stormy Solis died of a closed head injury, according to the Multnomah County Medical Examiner’s Office.

A family member of Stormy told KATU-TV that the girl walked home from school and told them there had been an accident on a swing set and that she felt dizzy.

When her brother went to check on her later, the TV station reported, he found her sick in her bedroom. The family called an ambulance, and the girl was taken to a PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center, where she was diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury, according to KATU. She was eventually taken to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland, and doctors took her off life support Friday morning.

The Evergreen School District said Friday that no one at the east Vancouver school saw the incident and that the student didn’t tell anyone about it. It said the district and a third-party investigator began an investigation that includes interviews with staff and a review of the weekly playground-inspection reports.
