Iraqi Girl in KY for Treatment

By  | 

A 12-year-old Iraqi girl is staying with a Lexington family as she gets treatments for burns.

The girl was burned from her chin to her waist in an explosion that happened on her family's farm near Baghdad in 2003.

She was treated with basic first-aid but no Iraqi hospital could perform the kind of surgery she needed.

She's now getting proper care at the Shriners Hospital for Children in Cincinnati.
