The Johnstown Tribune-Democrat investigates the bleeding death of a 13-year-old junior high school football player who was transported by helicopter to medical center in Pittsburgh rather than taken to the closer trauma center in Johnstown. The newspaper uncovers a "heated" competition among helicopter services that "may have lead" to the boy's death. The Tribune-Democrat investigation also reveals that "the closest available helicopters routinely are not being dispatched to accidents, placing victims' lives in danger."
