NORTHERN KENTUCKY (FOX19) -

A sledding accident sent a 14-year-old to Cincinnati’s Children’s Hospital with a serious back injury Monday.

Chloe Bohmer had gone sledding with a friend in the Fort Wright area around 8 p.m. The two went down a hill and slammed full speed into a ditch and injured her back. 

Chloe’s mom, Melissa Bohmer told FOX19 NOW said at first her daughter was unable to move. 

Melissa said her daughter had successful surgery around 10 a.m. Monday. She said doctors were then able to fuse her vertebrae in her back.

According to the US Consumer product Safety Commission,  there were more than 52,000 sledding type accidents in 2014 where people had to be treated by a doctor or nurse.

The safety commission also says the majority of injuries happen to kids under the age of 14.

Another child named Noah, suffered facial fractures, broken nose and tooth after he went sledding late last month. His father told FOX19 NOW he son went to Children’s today and got his neck brace removed.

Melissa said her daughter has no plans on going sledding again. She warns other parents to pay attention when your child is venturing out in the snow using a sled.

“You just don’t think about it,” Bohmer said. [I would tell people] to know the area your sledding [that way you won’t] run into a ditch or accidentally hit a tree.”
