Toddler had to have Metal Plate Fitted in her Hand After Her Finger was Left ‘hanging off’ After Catching it in a Mothercare Nanu Stroller

20-month-old Emily Booth required surgery to remove part of her finger and have a metal plate inserted into her finger after it was caught and cut in a Mothercare pushchair.
Emily’s mother is now looking into taking legal action against the sellers of the buggy Mothercare.
Her mother Amanda 21 told the Daily Mail: ‘Emily started screaming – I pulled the pushchair back up into place and realised her finger was hanging off.
‘It was awful there was blood everywhere.’
Emily was then taken to a medical centre on Higher Hillgate in Stockport and then taken in an ambulance to the town’s Stepping Hill Hospital.
She was then transferred to the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital and Amanda was told that Emily required surgery.
They tried to give Emily butterfly stitches but they didn’t work.
They operated on her the next day.
Following her initial complaint to Mothercare about the Nanu stroller Amanda has now instructed a solicitor.
She told the Mail: ‘I just want to make people aware of what happened so it doesn’t happen to anyone else.’
A spokesman from Mothercare said the company ‘have requested and would greatly welcome to see the pushchair and receive further information from the family as to how the accident occurred’.
Despite this Amanda says she is unwilling to return the pushchair in case it is needed for the claim.
The Mothercare spokesman added: ‘The safety of our customers and their families is our number one priority and we are taking this matter very seriously.
‘We were extremely concerned and offered our deep regret to hear of this accident.
‘We continue to offer our full ongoing support care and assistance to the customer and their family.
‘We would like to better understand what may have caused this accident and wish to carry out a full and thorough investigation as quickly as possible.’
Mothercare have said that no other similar accidents have been reported in the two and half years the pushchair has been on sale and it has a primary and secondary locking system tested in line with European Safety Standards.
