A Michigan charter school has come under fire after icing a child’s broken arm with frozen treats and failing to call 911.

Seven-year-old Brianna Hill was playing on the school’s playground last week when she fell and broke her arm. When she was taken to the school office, Sarah J. Webber Media Arts Academy officials did not call 911; instead, they went through her emergency contact list, according to My Fox Detroit.
