Sarah Hazell finished her part-time job and was feeling tired. She believed she was well enough to drive however her car veered off the road and rolled several times, all-but severing her right hand which was “hanging on by a tiny tendon”.
Four hours after her accident, Sarah was in Canberra Hospital under the care a Specialist Plastic Surgeon, who for 19 hours of surgery mended bones, tendons, nerves, arteries and veins and ultimately saved her hand.
At the time of the accident, Sarah was studying to be a primary school teacher. She has since switched to public health, planning to become perhaps an occupational therapist or psychologist.
