My 9yr old son was hurt while driving his electric go kart. This happened about 6 weeks ago. He was driving the go kart and reached down to hold onto the side bar. The side bar is right next to the tire and he grabbed that instead. We took hom to the emergency room within 5 minutes of the accident happening. He had 2 emergency surgeries that weekend and one more a month later. He ended up doing non repairable damage to his ring finger and pinky on his left hand. there is tendon damage to the pinky and nerve damage to both fingers. He had to have his ring finger and middle finger stitched together for a month while the skin grew back on his ring finger. he is starting physical therapy this week and will need plastic surgery when he is older to make his fingers look somewhat normal again.
