Disabled mum rushed to hospital after being found with hand severed off in Dundee home

Emergency crews rushed to her bungalow in Dundee after the alarm was raised just before 9am on Wednesday.

Cops probing the incident later arrested a man of 32.

Wheelchair-bound Sandra, who lives alone, is receiving treatment at Ninewells in the city.

Residents in her quiet housing association development told of their shock at her injury.

One said: “Sandra is severely disabled and struggles to talk. I think she had suffered a stroke.

“You’d see her sitting at her window and she waves when anyone walks past, but she rarely goes out.

“I can’t believe this has happened here.”

Another neighbour said: “She has carers who come and go but that is about it.”

A third added she was “well-known” in the area.

Detective Inspector Tom Leonard confirmed the woman was being treated for a “severe injury”.

He added: “We received 2a call of concern for a woman. A 32-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident.

“I would like to reassure the public that there is no wider threat. Our enquiries are at an early stage.”

A Scottish Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “A female patient was taken to Ninewells Hospital.”
