Michigan hospital emergency rooms and urgent care centers are seeing patients who’ve been injured during this cold snap.
Dr. Scott Lazzara is an urgent care physician at McLaren Greater Lansing. He says he’s seen a lot of slip and falls.
“We’re seeing a lot of people who are falling, breaking their wrist, hurting their back, spraining their ankles,” says Lazzara.
Lazzara says people are so bundled up to fight the cold their vision is impaired and they're less able to avoid slipping and falling.
