Schoolgirl walks four kilometres for help in bare feet after road crash

A TEN-YEAR-OLD girl walked four kilometres with bare feet to get help after the school taxi she and her sister travelled in had an accident.

The elder sibling suffered a large blow to the head, so the taxi driver opted to stay with her while her younger sister sought assistance.

Emergency services say the vehicle fell down a four-metre bank at the side of the ALL-4 road in Allande (Asturias) and was saved by hitting a tree.

When the little girl, who had climbed up the grass verge and walked without her shoes on, reached the nearest village, a large group of residents were waiting for her after having been alerted by the taxi driver via mobile telephone.

Residents of Penouta, four kilometres from the site of the accident, found the child with her feet completely destroyed, covered in bruises and very upset.

Several of them helped out with the rescue operation, and all three occupants of the car were taken to Asturias Central University Hospital.

Both the driver and the younger sister were discharged, but the elder sister remains under observation due to the blow sustained to her head.

Medics say her life is not in danger, however.
