A 10-year-old girl from Maryland was injured in a tragic sledding accident after being impaled by rebar. The young girl is now in a pediatric intensive care unit at Johns Hopkins Children’s Hospital.

This is so sad. A 10-year-old girl from Jarrettsville, Maryland was impaled by a piece of rebar during a tragic sledding accident and is now in intensive care. When Emergency Medical Services arrived to the scene, the girl was found “alert and talking but in pain,” according to ABC News

We can’t imagine how scary this must have been for this little girl. While taking advantage of the morning snowfall, the 10-year-old landed on a piece of rebar that was hidden by the snow. Luckily, her parents were nearby and heard her cries and she was extricated within 28 minutes, according to the NY Daily News.

Jarrettsville Volunteer Fire Company Chief Rudy Walter told the Daily News that the bar was about an inch-and-a-half in diameter and that there were approximately six inches of the metal sticking out of her.

Rudy continued to tell the paper that “she was definitely in a little bit of shock but she really did a tremendous job for having a piece of metal impaled in her” and that “you didn’t hear her yelling, screaming or crying. Periodically, sure. But she was a tough trooper for sure, for a 10-year old.”

Wow!

This is definitely a sad story, but we have to give this little girl credit for being so brave — certainly more brave than we would have been in the same situation!

The 10-year-old girl is currently in the pediatric intensive care unit at John Hopkins Children’s Hospital and has been described as in alert and stable condition. Our thoughts are with her and her family during this difficult time.

HollyMoms, are you proud of this little girl for being so brave? Tell us your thoughts below.

Just like a tax preparer takes your information and completes your 1040 form, it requires training to
learn where to place debt information in the proper areas of the
federal bankruptcy forms and schedules. The lawsuit claims that the 25 mile rule compels
patients to join their health care system which violates the State Constitution Article 27,
Section which states: “To preserve the freedom of Arizonans to provide for their health care: A law or rule shall not compel, directly or indirectly, any person, employer or health care provider to participate in any health care system. Individual debtors are relieved of their debt obligations by either complete discharge of debts or by restructuring their debt obligations and business entities are relieved as they are given a chance to prepare debt repayment plan and pay off their debts.
