Toddler's finger severed in Washington Square escalator accident

Wash. --- (KGW) A 2-year-old boy was rushed from Washington Square mall by ambulance Wednesday night after he got his fingers caught in the Food Court escalator.

A Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue spokesman said one of the toddler's fingers was severed. Another finger was severely damaged, and there were minor injuries to the others.

The escalator was taken apart to recover the severed finger. A second Metro West ambulance was called to take the finger to the hospital in hopes it could be reattached.
