I have had really long hair all my life and this has to be one of my top 10 worst fears. A 12-year-old Brazilian girl was riding a go-kart at Kartodromo de Anapolis in Brazil on Sunday, March 19th.. when her long hair wrapped around the axle and scalped her. I’ve seen several people that have been scalped, like this girl but none as bad as this little girl. I can’t imagine how much pain she was in mentally and physically and will continue to be in for awhile. Apparently being scalped by a go-kart is not such a rare thing. This is the second one to happen at the very same place. Hopefully the little girl has a great doctor and won’t have too much permanent damage. She is still in ICU and in serious condition as of yesterday.
