An 11-year-old girl suffered personal injuries and a nearly severed right arm on May 20 when she fell while climbing a wrought-iron fence.

The girl, whose name was not made available, received air transport to the hospital that night, according to Ron Lewis, a battalion commander with the Fayetteville Fire Department.

Lewis said the girl was attempting to climb the fence at a residence in the King’s Grant neighborhood off Ramsey Street in north Fayetteville to get into the pool.

The girl fell, causing her arm to become impaling on the decorative top of a fence post, according to Lewis. However, her weight caused her arm to tear loose as she fell.

Lewis said that the girl’s arm was nearly 70 percent severed. He did not know if any bones were broken or if only tissues were injured by the incident. According to reports, the girl had a pulse in the arm.

Lewis said that the homeowner discovered the girl and neighbors who knew the girl came to assist.

Lewis said the medical helicopter landed in the parking lot of a nearby church.
