#512749 - 3rd May 2011 6:41pm Wirral girl, 7, impaled on bicycle handlebars

A LITTLE girl who accidentally impaled herself on her bike's handlebars was recovering in hospital today.
Aleisha Hibberd, seven, was playing in the back garden of her home on Marlowe Road, Liscard, when she fell off her bike and the brake on the handlebars plunged into her stomach.
Her parents called paramedics just after 3.30pm yesterday, but they were unable to free her from the bike and firefighters had to be brought in to help.
A crew from Wallasey arrived at the large semi-detached house and used cutting gear to chop up the bike.
Aleisha was taken to Arrowe Park hospital for surgery with the handlebars still inside her.
Initially, the accident looked very serious, with paramedics alerting surgical teams at Arrowe Park that they were coming with a critically ill casualty.
But later in the evening relieved relatives waiting for News at the family home were told a CT scan had shown Aleisha's injuries were not life- threatening, and she would not have to be taken to Alder Hey.
The red-haired pupil of St George's Primary School, in Leasowe, was kept in hospital for observation last night and her parents stayed by her bedside.
Gran Pat Kennedy, who stayed at the family home to support Alicia's three brothers and grown-up sister, told the ECHO: 'We were here at the time.
'I don't really know what happened.
'Her brother said she was hit in the face with a towel while she was riding her bike and slipped over and then fell on the handlebars.
'It was as simple as that. She just fell off her bike.
'I know it was stuck in her, but I couldn't watch. It was too much.
'The ambulance came, but they couldn't get the handlebars out so they called the fire brigade and they chopped the bike up.
'We're so grateful to everyone who helped.'

Heard this on the radio, poor girl.

St Georges is in Wallasey Village not Leasowe.

Let hope for a full recovery, and that health and satefy bods realise that this was a freak accident, and that its safer to have brakes on bikes, than to remove them from a safety point of view.

It does make you think about the design of the brake handles though, its exceptionally hard to puncture your stomache with a blunt instrument. But fluke accidents do happen.

Indeed, but best read with a pinch of salt, and notify if you are not happy.

They'd have to ban towels too. Very unfortunate set of events. Hope she has a swift recovery.
