Former first daughter Ivanka Trump said this weekend that she received the call “every parent dreads” last week: Her son was injured and on the way to the hospital in an ambulance.
“This week I got the call from the school nurse that every parent dreads,” Trump wrote in an Instagram post on Sunday. “My 6-year-old son Theo broke his wrist playing soccer.”
Unfortunately, Trump wasn’t near the hospital at the time, so it became a “race” to see how quickly she and husband Jared Kushner, traveling separately, could get to their son.
“Since I was over an hour away, an ambulance took Theo, along with the school nurse, to the nearest hospital,” she wrote. “Jared and I ran to meet him, Jared arrived in the ambulance at the same time and I arrived a few minutes later.”
Trump, unsurprisingly, was thankful for taking care of his son after what he called “a bad break.”

“It was a bad break, but Theo was cared for tenderly and professionally by the capable EMTs, doctors, nurses and staff at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital,” he said.
Meanwhile her son dealt with the situation as only a 6-year-old could.
“Theo’s tour ended with two ice pops, causing him to declare ‘[T]Her best day ever!’, she wrote. “The nurse turned to me and said, ‘This is why I have pediatrics! No adult in the emergency room has ever said anything like that while giving an icepop.’
For their part, Trump and her husband took the opportunity to turn what could have been a very bad day into an opportunity to help others.

According to the hospital’s website, it sees about 65,000 patients annually in its emergency room, admits 8,600 patients each year and performs nearly as many surgeries.
The site says it offers “a broad range of health care services and programs in a child-friendly environment to treat minor illnesses, traumatic accidents and some complex medical conditions.”
The grant supports the organization’s efforts in research and education, new technologies and programs that allow patients’ families to stay close to their loved ones while they receive treatment.
The hospital even boasts a full-time clown to cheer up the younger patients.
