SEATTLE—A little girl is in stable condition after her finger was severed after being caught in an escalator Friday night. 

The toddler fell down while on a Seattle Metro University Street Transit Station escalator.

Technician Justino Limon desperately searched for the two-year-old's severed finger and once located paramedics put it on ice until it could be reattached at Harborview Medical Center.
