A Hutchinson toddler is walking and playing again, three months after a six-foot high stone wall fell on her.

Experts say the accident should have killed her - which is why Traileigh Humphries' family has much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving weekend.

After a flagstone wall at her grandfather's house fell on her, a series of lucky breaks helped saved the child's life - from the wet weather that left the ground extra soft to cushion the blow, to a local festival that had EMS crews just down the road at the time of the accident.

"If it wasn't for the Halstead Fire and EMS team, I don't know where we'd be today," said the girl's mother, Darcy.

Traileigh suffered a skull fracture, and a bone fragment had to be removed from her brain. She has fear and anxiety about certain things, her mother said, and at least one major surgery is ahead of her.

But she started walking again just one month after the accident, and now plays with her cousins as if nothing ever happened.

The youngest in her family, she's known for being scrappy, smart, and a spitfire.

"She's always been a fighter," Darcy said. "Always."
