Hide-and-seek in the Garage
My brother Nick came over to our home last Monday with his family for a short vacation. They were planning to stay for a week with us. My children were delighted to play with their cousins. Yesterday, while my wife and sister-in-law Marie were preparing lunch in the kitchen, the kids went to play hide-and-seek. Nick and I were out at the time.
My niece went to hide inside the garage
She was clinging to the garage door, holding on through the gap in the section joint of the door. She was there when Nick and I got home. Naturally, I clicked on the remote to open the door so we could park inside.
That’s when the accident happened. Her fingers were caught when the door folded up and she got stuck on the door. Her middle finger was almost crushed. Luckily, I heard the scream and realized what was happening so I closed the door back down.
That same afternoon I decided to call this local garage door repair service and had our doors replaced with one that has a protection system in place for section joints.
