What could come off the back of those seats, with enough force to sever a finger, yet not subsequently impale itself in the person's arm or chest or face? Unless your hands are in the air, you're thumbs are rather protected by the rest of your hand when holding the handles.
And just to note, that facebook post with her hand all "stitched back together" and bandaged up was at 11PM that night, which would seem far to fast for a truly severed finger to be re-attached. The picture makes it clear it was far worse than a bandaid over a couple stitches, but it couldnt have been much more than a flesh wound.
There was also a comment about how she was glad it was her sitting "in the seat that had a malfunction" instead of her son. Implying it was her own seat that caused the injury, not something from in from of her.
