Update: The Dillsboro sixth grader hurt in an all-terrain-vehicle accident near Moores Hill Sunday, Nov. 18, is out of intensive care but still in a coma, said family friend Brian Emerson Tuesday, Dec. 4.
“She is making small positive steps each day,” he added.
Emily Langdon, 11, Dillsboro, and her uncle Mike Langdon, 40, Moores Hill, were riding ATVs at family property when they came up the opposite sides of a ridge and hit head on, according to Moores Hill Fire Chief Robert Russell.
Emily Langdon started breathing on her own last week, said
Emerson. She is a patient at Children's Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati.
“The extent of her brain trauma/damage will not be fully known until she wakes up,” he said. Meanwhile, her uncle is being transferred from University Hospital, Cincinnati, to Drake Hospital to begin rehab and to continue his progress.
An account has been set up at Fifth/Third Bank to accept donations: Langdon Family Benefit. Funds will help her family with food, gasoline and other expenses as they travel back and forth to Children's Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati. Donations may be made at any Fifth/Third Bank, he said. Or if anyone has questions, they can reach Emerson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
