Eli Bailey Death, Obituary – Eli Bailey, a student at William James Middle School who was 12 years old and had been hit by a vehicle on Wednesday morning, passed suddenly as a result of his injuries. It was said that Bailey could see other students who were riding the bus with her at the time of the accident that occurred in Bulloch County Schools. The accident occurred only a few minutes after 7 o’clock in the morning on Stillwater Drive, which serves as the gateway to the Stillwater subdivision off of Maria Sorrell Road. Stillwater Drive was the area where the accident took place. After receiving the 911 call, deputies from the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office and the Emergency Medical Service were sent to the location.
At 7:12 a.m., the Georgia State Patrol was also requested to respond to the site. Jake Futch, the coroner for Bulloch County, took the decision to make public the identity of the kid later that morning after he had notified the child’s relatives and other members of the child’s family. Emergency medical personnel transported Bailey in an ambulance to the East Georgia Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 7:50 in the morning. Despite this, the hospital was unable to save his life. Students who are killed or injured in accidents are not publicly named by name by the school district, nor are they identified by the school if the incident happened off-campus.
According to the statement made by a spokesperson, “Our crisis and counseling teams have been activated,” and “we are providing administrative and counseling support for students, staff, and faculty at Mattie Lively (Elementary School) and William James,” because the students who were on the bus and witnessed the accident were involved with both of those schools. ” This is due to the fact that the pupils who were riding the bus were affiliated with those two institutions,” the driver explained. Greene said that the driver of the school bus is being completely cooperative with the investigation into what happened.
This is done to protect the privacy of the students and their families. This is the standard operating procedure. Greene highlighted the reaction of the school system, despite the fact that this information had previously been made accessible to the broader public by other sources. She made the observation that regardless of how old we get, the loss of a child would always cause us sadness and sorrow.
