WEST VALLEY CITY  — A teenage student using a band saw in a Granger High School metal shop class lost at least two fingers Thursday.

Granite School District spokesman Ben Horsley said the female senior was attempting to use the power tool when the accident happened in the early afternoon.

The girl was conscious and alert after the accident and was taken to Intermountain Medical Center in Murray, where she was met by her parents.

Horsley said he was unaware if the accident may have been witnessed by other students, but stressed that counseling services will be made available.
