Dylan Alexander, the 15 year old who was injured last week in a skateboarding accident, came home from the hospital Thursday after treatment for a head injury suffered when he crashed into a street light pole off Grey Fox Circle in southeast Pleasanton.
In an email to the Pleasanton Weekly, Judy Alexander, Dylan's grandmother, praised the quick response of the EMTs and firefighters for rescuing her grandson and rushing him to the hospital.
She also praised his brother Zack, 12, who helped alert rescuers by immediately yelling for help when the accident occurred, with the first responders rushing to the scene after receiving a 911 call.
"I cannot thank you (the first responders) enough for your quick response to get our grandson to the hospital," she said. "It has been a tough week for all the family but he is getting better slowly. Many thanks for all the prayers and support we have received."
Dylan, an independent study student at Amador Valley High School, is the son of Jess and Brian Alexander.
