A child was airlifted out of a Stevenson Ranch park and flown to a hospital Wednesday morning.

At about 11 a.m., a 911 call from Pico Canyon Elementary School reported a six-year-old boy to be unconscious, according to Los Angeles County Fire Department spokesman Richard Licon.

Crews from Fire Station 124 responded to the school and requested a helicopter response. A landing zone was formed nearby at Jake Kuredjian County Park.

Copter 16 landed at a grassy area clear of obstructions shortly after 11:30 a.m.

The boy and a parent were loaded onto the helicopter and flown to a pediatric trauma center minutes later.

No additional details were available as of 2:16 p.m.
