Lola Bennett (14), the victim of a prank which left he needing a finger amputation, at her home in Kingsbury, Warwickshire. April 28, 2016. A 14-year-old girl had her finger amputated after it was almost ripped off when a playground prank went horribly wrong. See NTI story NTIPRANK. Lola Bennett was rushed to hospital after her hand slipped on a spiked fence as she tried to retrieve her school bag which had been hung there as a joke. She used a tree stump to reach the strap of her bag but her friendship ring got snagged on the fence and tore her finger apart as pals tried to yank off her shoe. Her horrified friends raised the alarm and ambulance crews dashed to the memorial garden in Kingsbury School, Tamworth, Staffs., last Friday (22/4). She was rushed to Birmingham Children’s Hospital but surgeons were unable to save her middle finger on her left hand which was broken and had severe nerve damage. Brave Lola underwent a three-hour operation to have the digit amputated just below her knuckle. Despite her horror injury, Lola was back in lessons on Monday (25/4) and says she doesn’t blame her friends for the accident.
