Dateline NBC reporter, Kate Snow, shares her special report, which airs tonight on Dateline, on whether kids are heeding the safety lessons they've been taught. Then, 7-time NBA All-Star Grant Hill knows first-hand the dangers of MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus). In 2003, he developed a MRSA infection on his ankle and experienced a high-grade fever and convulsions from the potentially fatal and antibiotic resistant Staph infection. With the prevalence of MRSA increasing in youth athletics, Grant will talk about the prevention steps necessary to keep kids safe. Then, Dr. Ken Montgomery, team physician for the NY Jets and orthopedic surgeon, talks about the increase in knee injuries in teenage and young women athletes, esp. torn ACLs, new medical breakthroughs for treating knee injuries, and how to help young athletes prevent common sports injuries.
