BATON ROUGE – A child was rushed to the hospital after cutting off what sources said was the “tip” of a finger Thursday morning.

First responders were dispatched to Greenbrier Elementary School in the Monticello  area off Greenwell Springs Road around 10 o’clock Thursday to reports of the child’s injury related to their hand being smashed in a door. The child was about 5-years-old, sources said.

An East Baton Rouge Parish Schools spokesperson confirmed there was an incident and said the child was taken to the hospital with a school administrator where the student’s parents would meet them.

The district did not release additional information.
