A boy was airlifted from a North Fork golf course Friday morning after he was accidentally hit in the head with a golf club by his sister, police at the scene said.
The child — whose identity or age was not released by police — was struck at the Laurel Links Country Club about 9:55 a.m., police said. Mattituck firefighters and EMTs were called to the scene and treated the boy.
A police source said the boy had unevenly dilated pupils, indicating the possibility of a brain injury. Mattituck Fire Chief Vincent Tirelli Jr. said the child was airlifted to Stony Brook University Medical Center as a “precaution.”
“That’s the fastest way to get him to the hospital,” Chief Tirelli said.
