An attorney for a Wayne Township elementary school student is suing the district over a severed finger.

The student, who has special needs, was reportedly locked in an isolation room last year when she became frustrated during a Math class.

The suit alleges a staff member slammed the girls hand in a metal door, severing the girl’s finger.

The girl’s father said the heavy metal door looks like something out of a prison or a third world nation.

He is seeking an unspecified amount of damages.
