Amelia middle school on lock down Thursday

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The Amelia County Sheriff's office tells us the middle school was on lock down for a short time Thursday.

This was only because a med flight helicopter landed next to the school.

Authorities say a man was injured at the lumber yard behind the campus and needed to be rushed to the hospital.

They just wanted to keep students safe during landing and take off.
