Obama Ambulance

Obama Ambulance:

President Obama abruptly cut short a golf game and an ambulance sped toward his family's Hawaii vacation home after the child of a family friend suffered a minor injury.

White House aides said the quick departure from the golf course had nothing to do with national security or a threat to the president's safety.

CNN said the child of one of his golfing partners cut his chin and needed stitches.

The father was golfing with the president when it happened, and the President wanted to bring the father to the child.

The president was playing golf when members of the White House traveling press corps were quickly assembled to return to the area near Obama's vacation home.

An ambulance apparently was called, but the child was treated on the scene and did not go to the hospital.

Among those who have joined the First Family in Hawaii are his sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, and her family; close friends Eric Whitaker and Marty Nesbitt and their spouses; and Valerie Jarrett, another longtime friend who also serves as a senior White House adviser.
