FORT WAYNE – A Kosciusko County toddler continues to fight for her life after the buggy she and an older sister were in flipped Friday afternoon when their horse became spooked.
An official at Parkview Regional Trauma Medical Center in Fort Wayne Sunday morning told WSBT-TV the 14-month-old girl remained in critical condition, although her three-year-old sister was treated and released.
Sergeant Chad Hill of the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department said the children’s mother, Barbara Miller of Bourbon, was getting ready to leave the family’s home at 6891 North C.R. 750 West when the horse suddenly backed up. It happened around 2:30 p.m.
The horse’s action caused the buggy to flip on its side. The girls were trapped as the horse dragged the buggy about 50 yards to a stone drive. After the horse was stopped, area Amish families immediately sought help through 911.
