The family of a woman crushed by a tree in last weekend’s devastating windstorm are hopeful she’s on the mend.
Bobbi Gillcash’s daughter Andrea was recounting the harrowing tale to Global News.
“I hear this snap, and this crack, and I froze. Literally, coming directly at us, was this massive tree….it came down within a matter of ten seconds… it was way up there to on the ground.”
Details from Andrea Gillcash on how she avoided a massive tree which came crashing down in Surrey during last weekend’s windstorm.
Her mother Bobbi was not so lucky; she’s been clinging to life at Vancouver General Hospital for a week, having undergone surgery for severe spinal injuries and brain trauma.
But Bobbi’s sister Crystal Soderstrom says there’s signs she may be recovering.
Doctors in the Intensive Care Unit have informed the family that Bobbi has opened her eyes and would reduce the sedation after undergoing surgery for severe spine injuries and brain trauma.
“It’s all coming together; it’s like it’s a miracle.”
Doctors have told the family she will likely be paralyzed from the waist down if she survives.
