‘The Voice Kids’ contestant whose scalp was partially ripped off when her hair became stuck on a fairground ride has returned home from hospital and her family have released the first images of her recovery.
Marian Lorette, 6, suffered the accident at a fundraising event at the school she attends in the city of Saltillo in the north-eastern Mexican state of Coahuila.
The youngster reportedly got her hair stuck on a “mechanical ride” which tugged her locks when the operator stopped it suddenly to allow other children onto it.
She had part of her scalp removed in the accident and was said to be in a serious condition in hospital.
Marian caught the judges’ attention during casting for her rendition of ‘Do You Want to Build a Snowman?’ from the Disney film ‘Frozen’.
Following the first series of operations, the six-year-old starlet has since returned home, according to reports.
Her family said on social media that she will continue her recovery process at home with her loved ones.
The family added: “Towards the end of her treatment, the surgeries will continue, but for now she is resting.”
While the youngster was hospitalised, she had a surprise visitor in the form of her beloved horse Flash.
Even though Flash had to wait outside the hospital to see little Marian, she was said to be overjoyed and the visit lifted the girl’s spirits.
