NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A McCann Technical School student was seriously injured Wednesday morning in the metal fabrication shop. 
The 18-year-old girl suffered burns and was taken to Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield. 
"All we can do is confirm that an accident did occur and that the North Adams emergency services promptly arrived and administered appropriate treatment and transportation to BMC," said Superintendent James Brosnan. "The family is informed and aware of the accident."
He did confirm that it was a burn injury but said privacy laws and regulations prevented him from saying more. 
Northern Berkshire EMS responded shortly before 11 a.m. and a LifeStar helicopter was called. The medical chopper was expected to land at the Berkshire Mall but, according to scanner reports, the teen may have been taken directly to BMC.
Brosnan told The Berkshire Eagle that this was a rare occurrence and that the student appeared to be in "good spirits" when she was taken away by ambulance.
