ARDMORE, Okla. -- In an update now to a story we told you about last week, in which a toddler run was over by a school bus, that little girl is now back home with her family.
At not even two years old, little Sierra Page knows more about hospitals and medical treatments than most adults. She was seriously injured last Wednesday after somehow getting away from her dad outside and wandering into the path of a moving school bus in southeast Ardmore last week.
We spoke with the child's mother Tuesday afternoon, who said she has a broken leg and a broken pelvis but is otherwise doing pretty good. She had to be airlifted to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City just minutes after that accident happened.
"I’d like to thank everyone for praying with us and bringing her home safely...I mean I’m just thankful for the prayers because I know that was what brought her home so soon," Sierra’s mom, Charla Hickman, says.
Many people have asked how that little girl is doing and also what they can do to help. The family could use a hand in getting back and forth to Oklahoma City for the recovery treatments. Ms. Hickman said that the Broadway Tow Wrecker Service in Ardmore is holding a fundraiser and benefit.
