An ambulance was called to the compound where the Obama family is staying while vacationing in Hawaii. The story is breaking on the wires right now:
President Barack Obama has abruptly ended a round of golf and sped toward his family’s vacation home for what is being described as a “personal matter.” An ambulance was seen speeding toward their compound.
White House aides said the speedy departure and return to the president’s home was not a matter of national security or because of a threat to Obama’s safety.
Obama was playing golf when reporters who travel with him were quickly assembled for a return to the first family’s neighborhood.
Journalists saw an ambulance speed past with its lights on, heading toward the end of Obama’s street. The ambulance would have passed through a security checkpoint at the end of the street.
More when I find it.
Update: According to NewsFifty, CNN and Fox are reporting that everyone in the Obama family is fine. A family friend needed medical assistance for an unknown reason.
Update II: The son of a family friend had a surfing accident, apparently.
Update III: According to Chuck Todd’s Twitter stream, all is well. The injured child will be fine, so Obama is back at the golf course. (a commenter wanted a clarification.)
