Girl's eye impaled by shoe hook after she tripped, fell at southwest Ohio shopping mall store

DAYTON — Authorities say a girl suffered a serious eye injury when she tripped and fell onto a piece of a shoe rack in a clothing store at a southwest Ohio shopping mall.

The accident happened Sunday afternoon inside the Dayton Mall. Lt. Ray Eaton from the Miami Valley Fire District tells the Dayton Daily News the girl fell into a 7-inch hook used for hanging shoes, and it impaled her eye.

Eaton says the girl was taken to Dayton Children’s Hospital. Her injury wasn’t believed to be life-threatening.

Officials didn’t release the girl’s name or age.
