At 11:18 a.m. April 7, a Grand Rapids Community College police officer was dispatched to a medical incident in the Spectrum Bakery. The incident was reported by the GRCC Instructor Chef and the Program Director about a student who was disoriented with a migraine. On scene, the student was conscious and alert, but said she was unclear of the date, her location or what she was doing. She said she thought she was in the state of Texas and it was May 2010. Medical response was contacted and responded to the scene and the student was evaluated by medical personnel. At the paramedic’s request, the student was able to walk to the ambulance and was transported to Spectrum Hospital for further evaluation. The Program Director requested further follow up with herself, the police officer, the chef instructor, as well as two students who had recently worked closely with the student. One of the students said she saw the student’s eyes flutter and roll back in her head before she passed out. The situation will be evaluated by GRCC Disabilities Services as well as presented to the GRCC Police Department Sergeant, Lieutenant and chief for possible further action.
At 6:11 p.m. April 12, an officer was dispatched to the Ford Fieldhouse on a report that a student had injured his ankle while playing basketball. When the officer arrived on scene, he found the student sitting in a chair with bag of ice on his left ankle. The student’s ankle was clearly swollen. The student said he was going for a rebound under the basketball hoop and landed on another player’s foot, causing his ankle to roll. The student said he didn’t think the injury was serious and requested no additional medical attention. The student was able to borrow a pair of crutches from the training room and was driven home by a friend.
At 1:57 p.m. April 12, the GRCC police department received a report of two tampered lockers in room 114 of the Applied Technology Center, the Secchia Institute for Culinary Education women’s locker room. An officer was dispatched to the scene and met with two GRCC culinary students. Both students said they placed their property in their lockers at 8:50 a.m. and returned at 1:45 p.m. that same day. Both of their lockers were open when they arrived. Both students used an inexpensive locker to secure their property in their lockers. Both locks were found on the ground and were functioning properly. Nothing was missing from either locker. The officer suggested the students use a key lock, or a titanium combination lock to help avoid further incidents. There is no surveillance in the area. To enter the locker rooms, students do not need to scan a RaiderCard. The officer cleared the scene with no further action taken.
