Md. boy recovers from giant splinter
Christian Griffith was three-quarters of the way down the 40-foot slide in Mount Tabor Park when a splinter of wood pierced his belly, his father, Nolan Griffith, told the Frederick News-Post in a story recounting the incident that happened earlier this month.
Thanks to the help of medics and firefighters, his 8-year-old son was rescued from the Aug. 17 catastrophe and is back home in Thurmont. He has stitches from his upper thigh to his abdomen.
But the memory of that moment and concern that it could happen to someone else is making Griffith anxious -- particularly because the slide has been reopened. Officials at Mount Tabor Lutheran and United Church of Christ, which own the slide, could not be reached for comment Wednesday afternoon by the paper.
