It`s a clear cut case of BAD PARENTING!!!! But of course the company will have to pay for the parent`s neglect.

They didn`t actually say what the outcome was, so there is every possibility that surgeons were able to reattatch the hand.

And to anyone who commented on the pain side of things - I lost a finger about 18 months back and felt virtually no pain. Once the shock kicks in you go numb. Then they give you morphine :-)

This is still horrible though.

Poor little kid...
I usually don`t like kids, but at a time like this, that is just tragic!
Bad parenting...but it might not have been the parent`s faults...I`m not sure I wanted to know much more, it`s just too sad..

it`s sad, she won`t get to do any stuff that kids with two hands can do. she`s missing out on a childhood, in a sense...
i mean, it would probably be worse if it was a guy, but that`s so sad.

Wow, i feel bad, but think of those people who have NO arms. I saw a picture of this 5 year old boy who got his hand stuck in a meat grinder. I almost threw up when i saw it.

Somehow I think that there will be alot of complaints if there was a photo of a 18 month old baby with it`s hand ripped off... how did the baby get close enouth to grap it anyway? I assume there was someone with the baby.

If you`ve read Willy Wonka, you know how those candy factories can be. The parent should have known this going in.

I`m trying to decide whether this is a result of bad parenting, or bad health and safety?
