Clarifying Ripleys: Rachel Worthington @ England

Every once in a while, the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not daily comic-feature page of the newspaper has an item on it that doesn’t really provide much details, and I want to learn a skosh more. Here is the feature in question, about 16-year-old Rachel Worthington of Preston, England, who was speared in the face by a metal pole. Turns out a kid nearby was messing around with the pole and ineptly tossed up in the air. This article from the Sun @ UK has a slightly more detailed account, as well as a photo of the girl and her circle of stitches about nose-level. Here’s to a quick recovery, Rachel!
