A 2-year-old Kansas girl who was critically injured when a stone wall fell on her is surprising her family with her quick recovery.
Trayleigh Humphries of Halstead was injured Friday night while trying to crawl on the 6 1/2-foot wall, when 2-inch thick bricks fell on her.
Her falther, Steven Humphries, says she suffered a skull fracture, broken leg and a dislocated hip. He says that she has pins in her hip and a metal plate in her head but is awake, talking and playing. She might be able to return home from the hospital Tuesday.
The family believes wet weather weakened the wall. They credit quick response from emergency responders for helping their daughter’s recovery.
