These are the horrifying injuries sustained by a little girl during a freak playground accident.
Ranee Hillier, four, slipped while stepping from one log to another in Watson Road park in Blackpool, Lancs., damaging the tissue in her right eye.
The accident has left her with blurred vision and it’s unclear yet whether she will have any long-standing damage.
Mum Sarah Scott, 23, said: “It was really traumatic for us.
“Although they first thought Ranee had just grazed the skin near her eye, it quickly swelled up until she was unable to open it.
“We rushed her to the hospital, she was very brave -she didn’t cry.
“We’ve got to go back to see the eye doctor because he doesn’t know how badly its been damaged.
“She says she can see out of it but its blurry.”
Mum-of-three Sarah, of Marton, Lancs., have slammed the park for failing to install any warning signs, noting the logs are unsuitable for youngster children, despite them being a popular addition to many play areas.
She said: “Now I am just worried for other children.
“At that age she wants to be independent and wont let you hold her hand.
“She still couldn’t open her eye on Monday. They said she has damaged the tissue round her eye and had to wait for the swelling to go down until we can find out more.”
A spokesman for Blackpool Council said they had spoken to Mrs Scott following the incident.
She said she was happy with the outcome of the discussion.
Ranee’s mum Sarah says; “I went down to the council to show them how unsafe the park was. I went in because I was ringing all morning and was getting fobbed off.
“I went into the office and managed to speak to a claims adviser who said they would send out a claim form in the post, but it still hasn’t arrived.
“It’s not about the money I just want to be able to warn other parents about the dangers so the council will put up more safety things such as ropes that the kids can grab on to.”
Ranee is due to go back to the hospital next week for a check-up and Sarah hopes to find out whether the youngster will have any lasting damage.
Sarah said: “She’s been walking into doors and tripping over her own feet. I’ve covered up her good eye and asked her to count the fingers on my hand as she has got it wrong a couple of times.
“It has made her more cautious now. I have definitely noticed the change in her.”
Ranee had been taken to the park by her dad Ricky Hillier, 26.
Sarah said: “Her dad quite often takes her to the park to feed the ducks and play in the playground.
“I got a panicked phone call off him to say she had a nasty injury.
“At first he said it was just a graze but within 20 minutes it had swelled up out of nowhere.”
Frozen-mad Ranee is big sister to brothers Max, two, and Jackson, one.
Sarah said: “She’s the boss of them all and protective of them. She’s usually the one stopping them falling over.
“She’s usually a burst of energy everyday until she goes to sleep.
“Max was really upset when he saw her poorly eye.
“It has really affected us all and it is a constant worry if her eye is going to be ok.”
