A 3-year-old girl in Mesa, Ariz., escaped with several serious wounds after a trifecta of unfortunate accidents, MyFoxPhoenix.com reported Tuesday.
The girl was playing in her backyard Monday and was somehow able to climb to the top of a cinderblock fence, when she fell off the wall and landed on a neighbor’s cactus plant, MyFoxPhoenix.com reported. She was subjected to further bad luck when the neighbor’s two dogs bit her and dragged her across the yard.
Abby Trujillo Maestas, the girl’s neighbor who was not home at the time, feels awful.
“Our prayers, our hearts go out to the child and her family,” Maestas told MyFoxPhoenix.com.
The girl’s mother had to jump the wall to rescue the girl from the canines. She was brought to a local hospital for treatment of various puncture wounds on her head, neck and back. She’s expected to make a full recovery, MyFoxPhoenix.com reported.
