Infant loses part of arm in mishap

A child about a year old lost part of his left arm Tuesday in a motorcycle mishap on the Isla Venado in the Gulf of Nicoya.

The child went from Jicaral in Puntarenas to San José and the Hospital Nacional de Niños in a helicopter operated by the Servicio de Vigilancia Aérea of the Ministerio de Seguridad Pública.

The mishap is sure to launch an investigation because children under 5 years are not supposed to be carried as passengers on a motorcycle.
