Pleasant View, UT — An 11-year-old  girl in Utah has died after she accidentally impaled herself with a rod used to hold window blinds together.

Last Saturday morning, Nikki Clark was outside with her dog when she tripped while walking up the steps outside her parents’ home. She ended up landing on the rod which entered her chest, nicked her spine, and then exited out of her neck.

Nikki ran inside her house and, not knowing any better, removed the pole herself. The removal resulted in even more internal damage and caused massive bleeding.

“She immediately bled out within two minutes,” said family spokeswoman Brandi Babbitt.

Nikki was rushed to the hospital and underwent several surgeries and medical procedures, but doctor’s weren’t able to revive her. Nikki’s parents removed her from life support on Monday after she was declared brain dead and her salvageable organs were donated.

“It’s the decision we had to make ultimately because she wasn’t going to come back to us,” Tommy Clark, Nikki’s uncle, said. “The only thing we could do is let her go so she could be happy.”

The family is now looking at substantial medical costs on top of funeral expenses so a fund has been set up at U.S. Bank under the name of Nicole Clark, account number 153152943285. But be warned, I have not verified that fund so if you feel like donating money to the family, do so at your own risk.
