New York City Schoolchildren Face New Threat

Posted: June 15, 2011 by Keith Stone in school, the kids

It’s hard enough to be a kid in New York. You might not get placed in the school you want. You might be in a class with like 50 other kids. And you might get your finger cut off. Last week, not one but two kids had their fingers cut off at New York City schools ON THE SAME DAY! Both kids got their fingers stuck in doors and that’s never a good thing. The kids, aged 10 and 6, were taken to the hospital but neither school could locate the severed digit and that’s never a good thing either, although one of the schools found the finger a day later. Souvenir! Despite a lot of complaining on the part of their parents, neither child lost more than a nub and will likely get a hefty payday in court. Not a horrible tradeoff. I guess going to school does pay off. Maybe I should go to grad school and get my finger stuck in a door.
