Girl's Disease Turning Skin to Stone
A young girl’s skin is turning to stone as she suffers from a rare, incurable disease called acute systemic scleroderma, Scotland’s Daily Record reported Thursday.
The autoimmune disorder means Hope Barrie’s body produces too much collagen, causing her skin to tighten and harden.
It is difficult for the 11-year-old from Tarbolton, Ayrshire, Scotland, to move around, and she has already had to give up one passion.
Hope suffers from the systemic version of the disease, which starts out with poor circulation in the fingers and progresses to thickening of the skin, according to the International Scleroderma Network’s Web site. The disease may even spread to her organs.
As the disease progresses, the hardening of the skin makes it difficult to move fingers and toes, and open the mouth.
4-Year-Old Takes Car Keys, Goes For Joyride
At four-years-old, many children still can't ride a bike, but one Kentucky boy took it one step further.
The Lincoln County boy wanted to go to his grandmother's house, so he took the car keys and his little brother and left.
It happened on Saturday on Maxi Ridge Road in Lincoln County.
Sheriff Curt Folger says the boy took off while his mother and her boyfriend were asleep. The Sheriff says the boy got in the car, adjusted the seat and somehow got the car turned around.
The four-year-old didn't make it very far, crashing the car through a fence and some trees. Neither boy was hurt in the crash.
The Sheriff says when the boy's mother's boyfriend, Douglas Bell, got to the scene he was upset and made a move like he was going to hurt the boy or a deputy. Bell was arrested and charged with menacing. The boy's mother has been reported to child protective services in Jessamine County where she lives.
