A trip to the library should be filled with imagination – paperback adventure – and not real life blood.
Sacramento mom Christine Draa took her daughter, Delaney, to the Arden Dimick library on Watt Avenue last week. After they walked out the sliding doors, Delaney turned to read a sign on the door. That’s when four and a half year old Delaney and her tiny, flip-flopped feet got close, too close to read the sign.
“What we didn’t know that there was a little one-inch space where she had flip flops on and she’s little and she kinda just wedged her toes right under,” Draa told FOX40.
It was then Draa says the doors closed over her daughter’s toes. From cleaning the wound in a library bathroom, to a trip to an urgent care and then an emergency room, little Delaney got six stitches on her sliced open toes.
“There was a ton of blood. That’s really what alerted me that the injury was so severe,” Draa said.
Draa filed a complaint with the library to help cover Delaney’s medical bills.
“I haven’t yet heard from anyone at the library, asking if my daughter was OK, or for a copy of that report,” she said.
A spokesperson for the Sacramento Public Library says they’ve received Draa’s complaint and released this statement: “We are still investigating the incident and have no comment at this time,” said library public information officer Malcolm Machlachlan.
