First Responders Talk About Dana Payne Call

Posted: Updated:
Millington, TN -

The Millington Central High School Football team is back at it, preparing for tomorrow night's game against Kirby. The team resumed practice Thursday, after taking a day off following the passing of sophomore wide receiver Dana Payne. Payne died following an injury suffered after a tackle at Tuesday's practice.

"His shirt, shoulder pads and helmet were already off."

When Lieutenant Carey Maiden and the rest of his engine company with the Millington Fire Department got to 15-year-old football player Dana Payne he was on his back and was struggling to breathe.

"He was in a bad situation."

Maiden says Payne had coaches and trainers around him who said the wide receiver had just been tackled during a play on Millington Central High's practice field.

"He was doing a crossing pattern for a pass route and he got hit by a defense player," said Maiden.

After Maiden and his crew were briefed on what happened, they quickly assessed the sophomore and began their emergency work.

"Once paramedics came, we gave them the information and they did what they had to do."

While Payne was revived once, the efforts by emergency crews with him in the ambulance to Le Bonheur Children's Hospital couldn't bring him back a second time.         

"Unfortunately sometimes no matter what course of action we take we can't change the outcome," Chief Gary Graves said.

According to Graves, Payne died right before reaching the hospital, a 20 minute ride from the field he was taken from around 5:30 Tuesday afternoon.

"You don't expect those kinds of things to happen to young people. For it to end like that."
