Brutal photo: a little girl’s hand caught in a meat grinder in Hungary
The Heim Paul Hungarian Children’s Hospital has published a horrifying photo on social media. The picture depicts a two-year-old girl with her hand stuck in a meat grinder.
“Yes, unfortunately, everyone can see …. those fingers belong to a 2-year-old girl,” Heim Pál Children’s Hospital, Hungary’s largest children’s hospital, wrote on its Facebook page. The photo shows a child with a hand stuck in a meat grinder taken to the hospital.
The child had reached into the grinder and its pulley had pulled the little girl’s hand in and her fingers were almost up to the blades, rtl.hu reports.
According to the hospital, “the child was brought to our Surgery Department along with the electric meat grinder, where our hand surgeons, Dr. Gabriella Wéber and Dr. István Füle, operated on the child’s bone, nerve and tendon injuries in a bloodless state.” Heim Paul mentions that the surgery was successful, the circulation of the damaged tissues was restored, no signs of infection were detected, and the child’s hand will be restored to full function.
Word of caution
Dr. Anikó Nagy, Chief Medical Director, was grateful to the doctors and nurses of the hospital who work tirelessly to do what they do best: provide the highest quality of care for children.
The Heim Pál National Institute of Paediatrics performs nearly 2 million procedures a year. This makes it one of the largest independent children’s hospitals in Europe. The hospital aims to treat patients with the highest possible level of professionalism in all areas of paediatrics. Each year, they receive nearly 35,000 inpatients and one and a half million children and adolescents treated as outpatients.
The police station of Nagykőrös started proceedings against a 55-year-old woman for endangering a minor in connection with the case. According to information from the Pest Vármegyei headquarters, the person is the grandmother of the little girl.
The girl was taken by ambulance to Heim Pál Hospital. The hospital concludes its post with the words “Let’s take better care of our children.”
