Beach Replenishment Not Connected to Injuries

Aug 21, 2012

Beach In a two year study, Paul Cowan, chief of the Department of Emergency Medicine at Beebe Medical Center replenishment may not cause an increase in injuries after all.

Medical Center, found that the number of injuries in 2010 and 2011 were nearly identical.

He said that the injuries come in clusters with 10 to 20 one day and none the next.

He told the Salisbury Daily Times that if beach replenishment were the most important factor there would have been a steady stream of injuries from day to day.
