Terrible thing to have happen.

I hope the doctors can help her.

Ouch. This is a terrible freak accident that could and should have been avoided. To have one's future altered like that while on the verge of graduating and starting a new life is just harsh. Best of luck to the young woman, and I hope she can persevere through all of this.

The girl has undergone 12 operations to try to save her fingers but couldn't so I don't think there is much more the doctors can do.

I cannot believe the school failed to report this to the HSE, probably knowing they would be in the shit for this, however, the girl did not do as instructed with the mould and clay. The teacher should have told the pupils exactly what would happen if they didn't follow the correct procedure.

For the hands to have "cooked" in the plaster, I guess there must have been some lime being used for the plaster.

terrible reporting she lost 6 fingers and both her thumbs, surely the reporter must know that people usually have 8 fingers and 2 thumbs, not 10 fingers as this reporter implies.

According to the article, the teacher told her to put her hands in it. I want to know why it takes 10 minutes to set and she had her hands in it for that long though.

Not sure what's in Plaster of Paris but it can't have been that nice to have that done to your hands.

Didn´t they have a hammer in the arts room to break up the lump of plaster?
Plaster of Paris gets quite warm when it hardens, and there´ll be little transfer of heat out of the lump due to bad conductivity of heat, large volume and little surface.

The answer to your question is in the article.

I read the article again and beside the statement that "neither the staff nor the paramedics could get the plaster off" it doesn´t mention anything about how they tried to do it.
Getting the school janitor with his toolbox and lump hammer might have been a better option, though I´m quite sure that a sculptury room should have some hammers, chisels and maybe a maul or two.

No it didn't. The article says the teacher told her to put her hands in the clay to make a mold. The clay sets up quick. Instead, she put her hands in the plaster, which takes a much longer time to set up.

It's unfortunate that this happened, but the girl should have been paying more attention to what she was doing.

I hope she recovers as fully as possible.
