    Jesus that is horrifying. I feel so bad for that brother that’s going to take a lifetime of therapy for him to feel okay again.

      It is horrifying.

      To avoid future tragedies like that racket company needs to be sued so they make safer rackets.

      Just in case the metal rod comes off it needs to have a rounded blunt end, so it doesn’t hurt anyone.

        It’s kinda hard to blame that company. We don’t even know how old the rackets are, if they were abused, or taken care of.

        The situation sucks, but sometimes there just really isn’t someone to blame.

        Yeah, I wouldn’t even know where to begin as that family. I hope they can make it through this.

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    A little girl’s fight for life has ended in a Maine hospital four days after a horrific accident while playing badminton with her 10-year-old brother during an idyllic lakeside family vacation.

    Lucy Morgan, six, was hit in the head by part of her brother’s racket when it disintegrated as he played a shot on the last full day of their vacation in Limerick.

    The girl was airlifted to the Maine Medical Center in Portland where her family was told she had suffered a catastrophic brain injury in the freak accident on June 1.

    With no hope of recovery, her three young siblings joined their parents at her bed to sing her favorite hymn for the last time before their little ‘Miss Independent’ died in the early hours of Wednesday.

    ‘Due to a freak accident with a racquet that broke on a downward swing, a sharp piece had entered Lucy’s skull while she was sitting on the sideline and caused catastrophic injury.’

    Morgan, a pastor with the Green Pond Bible Chapel in Rockaway Township, began documenting his daughter’s struggle for life over the next four days on his church blog.
