Palatine, NY- A 1 year old Amish girl trampled by a horse and rushed to Albany Med. center on Sunday night will be okay according to state police at Fonda. Authorities say the 1-year-old girl is expected to make a full recovery from injuries suffered when she was trampled by a horse on her Amish family's farm in the Mohawk Valley. State police tell The Daily Gazette of Schenectady that the accident occurred Sunday while the girl's parents were milking cows at the farm in the Montgomery County town of Palatine, 45 miles northwest of Albany. Troopers say the baby was on a small cart while her siblings played nearby. One of the children was playing with a horse that grew skittish and bolted from the barn. Police say the horse tripped over the cart and stepped on the baby. The girl was taken to Albany Medical Center, where she's being treated for broken ribs and a lacerated liver.

Still the headline is mis-leading.
As a rule, domesticated horses are very reluctant to step on or harm a human, with malice.
They are more likely to kick or bite in self defense.
I suspect the horse was unaware that it had stepped on the child.
Let alone trampled her.
An unfortunate accident.
Good to read the baby will recover.

Yea, thank God she/he wasn't killed! Some people say that the Amish are bad people because the way their lives are lived means that accidents are more common, and that more often than not help is too late.
