Wine not? Doctor makes temporary cast out of VERY unusual material for two-year-old boy who injured his arm after jumping off a coffee table.
A toddler who hurt his arm after falling off a coffee table was given an old-fashioned painkiller when his parents made a makeshift cast out of an old wine box.
Two-year-old Reggie Stockman hurt his arm badly while playing at home in Kairi, in Queensland’s Tableands, on Tuesday night – but after a late-night visit to the hospital, he was sent home and told to return in the morning.
When the pain didn’t go away, the toddler’s worried parents called Dial-A-Doctor and were advised by Dr Brenton Wilson to create a temporary splint out of household items until a proper cast could be fitted.
Reggie’s mother Kimberley Stockman told Daily Mail Australia her youngest child was wincing in pain and desperately needed medical attention.
