Girl gets leg stuck in snow blower

A six-year-old girl from Vienna has trapped her leg in a snow blower in Radstadt, Salzburg, yesterday (Mon). She was severely injured.

A 70-year-old retiree from the district Tennengau was clearing snow in front of a house in Radstadt at around 10.30 am, when the girl approached him.

She slipped directly in front of the snow blower. One of her legs got trapped in the machine.

The police said in a press release that the girl’s leg was pulled inside the snow blower. This resulted in fractures of the thighbone and shin bone.

The girl received primary medical care and was then taken to hospital in Schwarzach (Pongau).
