Woman’s fingers partially severed by wood splitter (WARNING! – GRAPHIC IMAGES)

A local woman had to be transported to West Georgia Medical Center Saturday after two fingers on her right hand were accidentally entangled in a wood splitter.

Janet Rainwater, a resident of the Texas community, was at her home with her nephew at the time of the mishap.

According to Rainwater’s daughter, Lisa Payne Orantes, doctors were able to reattach her mother’s index and middle fingers, which were both severely lacerated at the first knuckle, and she was able to return home Saturday evening.

Orantes told us via email that while it seems the index finger will be ok, surgery is a possibility for the middle finger which was the most heavily damaged.
