A 10-year-old Laporte boy injured last week in a playground accident returned to classes Tuesday after being airlifted to a Minneapolis hospital.


The boy, the son of Leroy and Leota Whitebird, was apparently not seriously injured when he fell off the platform of a handicapped ramp Friday on the schoolgrounds.

Hubbard County Chief Deputy Frank Homer said school officials said the boy will be wearing a neck collar temporarily, but suffered no lasting injury to his extremities.
