Huntingdon teen loses finger in fence fall

A TEENAGER has had an operation to re-attach a finger after it was broken off when he fell from a fence in Huntingdon.

Magpas Helimedix Dr Fiona Bowles and paramedic Ryan Warwick were called to treat a 13-year-old boy at 7pm last night (Tuesday). They gave him antibiotics and anti-sickness drugs before he was taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital.

The teenager was taken straight to theatre for the operation. Magpas Dr Fiona Bowles said, “He was a very brave young man, he did really well”.
