Junior high student severs finger

Posted:

CedarFalls (KWWL) - A Cedar Falls Junior Jigh School student had her finger severed in a freak accident in a school hallway.

Holmes Junior High officials say the student jumped out to touch an overhead beam in a door frame yesterday when a ring on her finger got caught on a door closer.

The student was taken to a hospital, where surgeons tried unsuccessfully to reattach her finger.

The student's name was not released.

We're told the student plans to return to school on Monday.
