Waukesha girl stabbed was “one millimeter away from certain death”
WAUKESHA (AP) — A court document says the 12-year-old girl stabbed 19 times in some woods in Waukesha narrowly escaped death.
Doctors at Waukesha Memorial Hospital told police the girl was “one millimeter away from certain death” because one of her stab wounds missed a major artery near her heart by a millimeter.
The document says a surgical team performing laparoscopic surgery on the girl found injuries to her liver, pancreas and stomach.
