Young girl hurt in a golf cart accident in Heber Springs is expected to recover fully



Little Rock, Arkansas – On June 10, the Cleburne County Sheriff’s Office responded to a golf cart incident that required one girl to be life-flighted.

Her father’s comment was included in an update from the sheriff’s office.

When it was time for the girl to undergo surgery, one of the sheriff’s office officers gave her a plush lion, which she found solace in.

“It was my daughter that was injured in the golf cart accident. First of all, THANK YOU so much for responding to the scene so quickly. Though I was not at the scene, multiple people have told me about the effort and compassion shown by the officers. Secondly, please tell the officer that gave my daughter the stuffed lion thank you SO MUCH. She squeezed that lion all the way until they took her back to surgery at ACH. She has with her now during her recovery,” said the father. “Lastly, I’m happy to say that because of the efforts of the first few people on the scene, your officers, the paramedics, the life flight team, and all of the staff at ACH, she is expected to make a full recovery. We hope to be out of the ICU in a few days. Feel free to add an update to your Facebook post that she is recovering well. Please have everyone keep the prayers coming. We will come by the office next time we are in town.”
