After writing up my recent stories on 3-year-old Brayden, the little boy who survived a drowning incident several weeks ago, I received an email from Kershaw County Emergency Management Services (EMS) Deputy Director Gerald Blanchard. Blanchard very rightly pointed out to me that in reporting on the original near-tragedy and Brayden’s recovery, I had missed the great work performed by Kershaw County 911 Dispatch and the EMS team that responded to Brayden’s parents’ call. It was Monday, Jan. 23, at 1508, or 3:08 p.m. According to Blanchard’s information, only 12 minutes elapsed from the call coming in to EMS leaving the scene with Brayden.
