Henning, Minn. - One little girl from Henning Minnesota is fighting for her life after a terrible accident on the family farm.
5-year-old Savhannah Springer is currently at the Hennepin County Medical Center and doctors say if she was an adult, she would have died.
It's a situation no parent ever wants to go through. A little-girl with an un-imaginable injury that happened at the place she loves to call home.
"She loves to farm. That's why she was there. She's so smart, she knew what was happening next and she was trying to help," said Brittany and Stephen Springer, Savhannah's Parents.
Parents Brittney and Stephen Springer know their daughter just wanted to help out on farm, but it went terribly wrong.
"It's hard. It's really hard to see her like that. It's not the Savhannah that we know," said Stephen Springer, Savhannah's Dad.
This Monday, she was pinched between the hitch of a haybine and the hitch of the tractor. Causing severe abdominal injuries prompting a frantic drive to the hospital.
"She would start answer more slowly, and you could see her face was starting to get more white. Then there was a point when I got in the van, and he was putting the kids in the van that she stopped answering me. Then there was another point when her eyes closed. And it was scary, but like I said before I had some super natural sense of peace where I knew she wasn't going to die," said Springer.
They eventually life-flighted the girl to the cities. their daughter so full of life, now lying on an operating table as doctors put her back together--and as her parents put their faith in a higher power.
"Five years isn't long enough and God has a way bigger plan for her than 5 short years," said Springers.
Today the 5-year-old was in and out of consciousness but doctors expect a full recovery and her parents expect an excited return to the family farm.
"When you're a farmer, you don't just quit. You can't. It's in your blood, it's what you do and what you love," said Springers.
Savhannah's parents say she should be much better in about two weeks but will keep praying.
