I didn't catch where it happened, but it was on local news. A six year old girl was in the kiddie pool at a public park, and someone there was a malfunction in the drain. She ended up sitting on it, and the suction from the drain was so strong she couldn't stand up....and her intestines were sucked out from her butt! She finally was able (somehow) to get herself off, and collapsed after 2 steps. She was in surgery for hours but did survive. She has to be fed through an IV though, because they couldn't save her small intestines. And, they said this wasn't the first time something like this has happened (but the first time at that pool). But most of the victums didn't survive. I'll try to find the link, but our local news website is not very user friendly. What I want to know is where was that girl's mom/dad/babysitter...who was watching her???
