The 6-year old girl, Erica Rix, was playing with a jump rope while riding in her SUV with her mother.

She had the slip knot on her wrist, with another end hanging out the window.

The jump rope got caught in the axle of the SUV though, and sliced off the hand of young Erica Rix.

Thankfully, someone walking nearby found the hand with the jump rope still on it.

4 surgeons carried out a 10-hour surgery to re-attach her hand.  She is now recovering and is expected to be just fine.
