Tonight I carried my youngest daughter (Vicky, 5 yo) from the car to our house. As I shut the car she said “Careful! I’m always worried that I get my fingers caught between the door.”

It actually happened twice over the past two weeks. The usual accident: a sibling closing the door while she was still getting out. Three fingers stuck at the hinge side … owww!

We were lucky. Land Rover hinges have plenty of play, so it was painful but she still has all her fingers.

Vicky continued: “I’m worried because, you know, it hurts to get your fingers stuck. Three fingers hurts a lot. One finger doesn’t hurt so much. Two fingers I don’t know. I haven’t tried.”
