Thoughts and prayers go out to the victim and his family, I hope he recovers soon. But why would they take a stab victim in Ardmore all the way out to Paoli hospital? That is much much further than Lankenau, Bryn Mawr, or even HUP (University of Penn)

Why would they release the kid into the "custody of family members"? Was he sent to his room without dinner, too? Could this be why kids grow up to become criminals?

Geez louise. In Ardmore! Yeah, I thought that by law the patient had to be transported to the closest hospital?

Perhaps because he is 10? Were you thinking Graterford? Truth is, there are almost no details in this story. Too soon to rush to judgement, I think.
