A seven-year-old boy in Jiangsu had his left hand seriously cut up by the rotating blades of a fan when he tried to imitate a popular cartoon show by making a “super fan” at home.
The boy named as Hao Hao, from Xuzhou in Jiangsu province, was inspired after watching a cartoon called “Boonie Bears” (Xiong Chu Mo) on Wednesday afternoon. He took the protection cover off the rotating fan as he wanted it to more closely resemble the one in the cartoon, which was made by the main character and could blow away people. His left palms and fingers were cut by the high-speed rotating fan blades with wounds deep enough to expose the bones.
Hao Hao was reportedly enjoying his summer vacation at home with his grandfather when the accident happened. The scream from Hao Hao woke his grandfather up from a nap and the graphic images of his bloody hand shook him completely. His grandfather immediately wrapped Hao Hao’s hand with a clean towel and sent him to the hospital.
According to Hao Hao’s grandfather, the family usually praised his acts of cleverly dissembling toys.
The doctor said that the wounds in Hao Hao’s left hand were about five centimeters long. Muscles, nerves and blood vessels were seriously damaged. Bone fracture was also found in his left hand fingers with wounds that were deep enough to expose the bones. Doctors, after spending more than three hours performing surgery, helped to save the boy’s hands successfully.
