Video: 6-year-old's fingertip is severed, but school doesn't call 911

Video from A 6-year-old student at a Texas elementary school lost her fingertip in a school accident, but officials waited for the student's mother to pick her up instead of calling for an ambulance. The Dickinson (Texas) district says Amazing Johnson, a kindergartner, lost the tip of her finger when it accidentally got caught in a door at Hughes Road Elementary. The girl's mother says administrators downplayed the the injury when they called saying someone needed to pick Amazing up. The mother took the girl to the hospital, and doctors reattached her fingertip, but they aren't sure what the future holds.
