    The paramedics sent the boy to the hospital by ambulance.

    The paramedics sent the boy to the hospital by ambulance.

    My daughter wrote the above sentence>

    Is sent the correct verb? Or should it be took?

    Thanks.

    They sent him to the hospital if the paramedics didn't go with him. If they went along in the ambulance, they took him there.
