Angels Pitcher Helps Teach Kids Earthquake Safety

The event at Melrose Elementary in Placentia is part of Edison International’s PrepareSoCal partnership.

SOURCE: Edison International

DESCRIPTION:

Hector Santiago, a pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, was hit by a pitch and suffered a head wound. Luckily for him, it was just a simulation and Ruby, a 9-year-old student at Melrose Elementary School in Placentia, California, helped bandage and care for his fake wound.

“I learned how to wrap Hector’s head with a bandage after he got hit in the head with a baseball,” said Ruby. “I didn’t think I would be doing that when I came to school today and I was a little nervous.”

Ruby was one of 95 fourth-grade students at Melrose Elementary who took part in the emergency preparedness assembly that focused on earthquake safety. Santiago helped demonstrate how to stay safe using a variety of mock drills.
