Horrific tug of war accident severs high school students' fingers2/5/2013
A horrific tug-of-war accident left two California high school students with severed fingers. Students at South El Monte High School in Los Angeles County were playing tug of war Monday when the rope snapped. Edith Rodriguez and Pablo Ocegueda, both 18, each lost four fingers on their right hands and Rodriguez also lost her left thumb. The students were taken by ambulance to a local trauma center and underwent surgery at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center to reattach the digits. There has been no update on their conditions. The game was part of the school's Spirit Week, and Superintendent Edward Zuniga said the district wanted to "have all the facts straight before we talk about changing activities." Er, Really? We think you can go ahead and cancel tug-of-war for the foreseeable future, buddy. [Source]
