Preschooler Calls 911 After Machete Injury

Heroism has no age limits.  A pre-school girl was recently the hero when she was at home with her father. He was cutting down a tree in the backyard. While he was using his machete to chop branches, he landed a blow to his arm which deeply cut into his wrist.  Nobody else was around, but his daughter came to the rescue.

She was sitting on the porch with her sister when the accident happened. Her mother had taught her how to dial 911 earlier, so she dialed the phone and held it to her father’s ear while he talked to the dispatcher and explained the problem to them. Fortunately, the 911 operator was able to explain how to slow the bleeding until two ambulances arrived on the scene to take him to the hospital.

Accidents happen in the backyard all the time.  A rock might fly from the lawnmower, a tree branch might fall, or some other type of injury may occur. Occasionally, it is possible to be injured due to the negligence of another party in your own yard. In such a case, you may want to seek legal help.

If you have been injured in an accident, make sure that you have the right legal representation on your side.  Stokes Law will make sure that you receive the best course of action and will pursue the highest legal settlement possible.  It’s a frustrating process without a lawyer on your side.  Make it easier on yourself; hire a lawyer today by calling us.
