Girl got injured from a plastic bottle
A 13-year-old girl from Vancouver was hospitalized on Sunday, July 29, after a sad accident with a plastic bottle.
The girl picked up a plastic bottle thrown away from a passing car. She wanted to get the bottle out of the road, but when she took it, the bottle exploded in her hands.
A neighbor Gloria Rubio, who was in her yard at that time, saw how it all happened. She told the Vancouver police:
I saw her pick up a bottle and heard like a firecracker. I saw a lot of blood dripping and I saw the plastic in her hands, it was bad.
The neighbor immediately called 911. The girl was taken to a hospital with deep cuts on her hands. Luckily, doctors said the teen would be fine. She received several stitches, and at the moment, she keeps on recovering at home.
Her mother, Ashli Fortner, commented on the situation:
My message to those people who did this is karma always comes around.
