Last year, a little girl was playing on the beach with her family when a family member noticed what was thought to be a small cut to her head. Unfortunately, it turned out to be something so serious that it required immediate surgery.
The 5-year-old girl had been wearing a plastic ponytail holder that had punctured through her skull. Doctors performed emergency surgery to repair what was reported to be a traumatic brain injury. The family now believes that the young girl may have fallen down while playing, a common fall that turned nearly fatal due to the hair tie. As a result, the little girl suffers from a reduced attention span. While she is still functioning as a normal 5-year-old child, the family is waiting anxiously to see whether the serious injuries will affect her further in the future.
