  1. One does not run over a child mistakenly, one runs over a child unintentionally. Perhaps if the driver was more aware of their surrounding and not preoccupied, then this type of accident would not have happened. There are no excuses that anyone can offer for running over your child. ABSOLUTELY NONE.

  2. Wow. Crazy. Broken femur is no joke.

    And like Elaine said, it can be very damaging to the patient if moved around without proper stabilization.
    (e.g. Hare traction)

  3. I imagine the mother panicked and made the mistake of pulling the child out from under the vehicle. She may’ve caused more damage. Calling 911 is what should’ve been done. EMS would’ve removed the child without further injury and transported her properly while being treated. Unfortunate all the way around. I pray for a full and quick recovery for this child.

  4. I’d like to be at that kids’ seudas Hoda’ah – thats gonna be a doozer. Catered meal, steak, ribs, linen table clothes, china dishes, NY Philharmonic 70 pc orchestra …….

  5. #7– sometimes if no name is given for Tehilim it usually means that there is no name for Tehilim. We wish both Mum and child G-dspeed and we all understand despite the severiy of this incident that accidents do happen.

  6. As a side point, the mother should not have admitted her involvement to anyone. It was irrelevant to the child’s treatment and she could now be facing serious charges. Remember, anthing you say can and will be used against you!

  7. to jog a thon: what kind of comment is that? Yes, we can all assume the parents will make a seuda hodaah but saying that regarding the menu is a terrible thing to say. At any rate its up to the parents what type of menu the wish to have. Believe me, that is the last thing on their minds right now .their should have a complete refuah shelama

  8. They aren’t of the Jewish religion, and don’t pass judgement on something you have no idea about. She was a 2 minute drive from the hospital and made a decision in the best interest of her child and probably saved her life. If you can’t have the decency to just have prayers for the child keep your comments to yourself.
