SAVANNAH, GA (February 22, 2011): A Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department K-9 officer was treated for a minor head injury today after an accident during a training exercise.

Cpl. Amanda McGruder was training her dog in tracking at the SCMPD horse barn near Garden City when she ducked under what appeared to be a leafy branch. The leaves hid a large limb that struck her head.

She was transported to Candler Hospital for tests that showed no concussion and released, according to Sgt. Greg Ernst of the K-9 Division.
