ROCKLAND, Maine -- The father of a 5-year-old Rockland boy whose hand was severed in a freak accident last month has sued the child's grandmother over the incident.
The Bangor Daily News reports that a lawsuit was filed July 18 in Knox County Superior Court by Anthony Pignone of Dennis, Mass., against Sharon Setz of Rockland.
The boy was a passenger in Setz's car on June 26 when he tied a jump rope around one his wrists and dangled the other end out the window. The rope got caught on the vehicle's wheel and severed his hand.
The hand was reattached at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston during a 14-hour surgery.
The Bangor Daily News sent a message to Setz through Facebook on Thursday and she said she had no comment.
