Yesterday on our local news there was a little girl 6 years old who was playing with a jump rope in the back of her mothers SUV. Well the little girl tied the jump rope around her hand and threw the rest of the jump rope out the window because she wanted to see it fly. Well the jump rope end ended up getting wrappped around the back wheel well, and tore the girls hand off. Her mother heard her screams, pulled over and saw that her had was missing. The car behind them stopped and quickly picked up the girls hand. They were able to get her to the hospital in time to reattach the hand. When I heard this I thought wow....I never thought of an accident like that. So i just wanted to share that with you guys. I was so surprised on how it happened.

wow that is shocking! thank goodness they were able to reattach her hand. I couldn't imagine something like that happening to my kids. i wonder if her mom saw her put the rope out and thought it would be ok. i would feel horrible if i let my kid hang it out the window and then that happened. hopefully the little girl will make a full recovery.
