Brave Kirsty returns to school
KIRSTY Jarvie was met with applause at Glenore Grove State School last week after returning just two months after being run over by a bus in Plainland.
The six-year-old made an amazing recovery after suffering life threatening injuries from being dragged underneath her school bus on May 31.
Kirsty’s mother Olwyn Jarvie said it was a miracle her daughter had recovered so quickly.
“It’s amazing, it was a miracle and like winning the lottery,” she said.
“It was a freak accident and she was very lucky.
“I’m happy with all the support from the school and the Lockyer Valley, it’s amazing how wonderful people can be.”
The ambulance had to stop three times on the way to Mater Children’s Hospital in order to keep Kirsty alive with her lungs drained of blood along with a blood transfusion also needed.
Mrs Jarvie said a dinner would be held on Saturday, August 27 at Porters Plainland Hotel in order to raise much needed funds for the family.
