Man Brings Sink And Daughter Too
TEXARKANA. Tex. (AP)-Attend¬ants laughed when Casey Williams walked into the hospital carrying a kitchen sink. Then they learned the sink was firmly attached to a finger of 4-year-old Joan Williams.
Williams explained that his daughter got her finger stuck in the sink drain and he couldn’t get it out. So he unbolted the plumbing fixture and brought both sink and child to the hospital.
After a few minutes work in the hospital emergency room attend¬ants reported that Joan’s finger was saved—but the sink was lost.
