"Little People Big World" star injured

Filed under: Tweens, Health & Safety: Babies, Celeb Kids, That's Entertainment

When it comes to television, one of my favorite shows is TLC's Little People Big World. I have a special place in my heart for the Roloffs, an Oregon family where three of its six members are dwarfs. In fact, I since I tend to watch the show while making cards, I always get a Roloff craving while visiting my local crafts store.

Jacob Roloff, the youngest member of the family, has been seriously injured in an accident on his family's pumpkin farm. Jacob, who is nine and of average height, was injured when he was hit in the face by a pumpkin catapult. Those who are familiar with the show would remember the catapult from last season, where they used it to draw visitors to the farm.

Their family friend, Mike Detjen, was pinned by the catapult and is also in serious condition. Patriarch Matt Roloff, who is also a little person, posted on the TLC message board that Jacob would need surgery but should make a full recovery.

While this is the most serious of Jacob's accidents, this isn't the first. Roloff fans might remember episodes were he was stung by a jellyfish and busted his eyebrow. Here's hoping to Jacob's full recovery!
