Mom outraged after son's finger severed at school

Posted: Updated:
STEELTON, Pa. (WHTM) -

More than a week ago, mom Shontel McCullough said staffers at her son's school handed her a plastic bag with a piece of his finger in it.

McCullough said the incident happened late in the school day on Friday, November 22 and she did receive a call from the school.

"The voicemail said your son's hand's been cut and you need to pick him up to seek medical attention," McCullough told abc27.

When she arrived at her son's school, Steelton-Highspire Elementary, she was handed a plastic bag with ice and a piece of her son's middle finger in it, according to McCullough.

She was told by school officials that there had been an accident and a teacher accidentally shut a door, severing her son's finger.

Her son, 11-year-old Quaidre, said things were a little hazy after that. 

"I couldn't remember much," Quaidre McCullough said.

Shontel rushed Quaidre to the hospital where doctors tried to reattach the severed section of his finger. There's still no word if it will take. The sixth grader is now wearing a splint with a wrap.

Shontel is outraged and waiting for details and explanations.

"Who knows what would have really happened if they seeked the medical attention right then and there," McCullough said. "What do you have against my son that it gets swept under the rug like nothing happened?"

abc27 reached out to school officials. We have not heard back yet to hear their side of the story.
