Teen dragged by steer returning home
A 15-year-old Flintstone girl is coming home 2 1/2 months after she was severely hurt in a farm accident involving a 700-pound steer.
The Cumberland Times-News reported Wednesday that the animal dragged Vanessa Rinehart about 200 yards by a rope she had tied around her waist.
Jeanette Rinehart says her daughter suffered head and kidney injuries, and was not expected to walk again.
However, Vanessa has been skipping, hula-hooping and climbing stairs at the Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore.
The mother says Vanessa also has regained some of her old spunk. She says she knew her daughter was getting better when the teenager argued one night that it was too early to put her cellphone away.
