The decision to let STARS fly again, announced last week, came more than three months after the service was suspended.

A Manitoba student was rushed to hospital with a head injury by STARS ambulance after a snow tubing accident on Thursday.

Barb Hamilton, owner of Falcon Ridge Ski and Recreation Area, said today that STARS was called after the girl was assessed by local ambulance crews.

"It happened at the end of the day," Hamilton said.

"There was a collision at the bottom. One student didn’t move away fast enough and one tube ran into the other."

Hamilton, who didn’t know the condition of the student, said the girl was part of a school trip from a school in southeastern Manitoba.
