Parents of a 24-year old woman, whose left leg was snapped and cut by a homemade zip line while kayaking down the creek in Carrollton, said signs of hope are seen from her.
Aimee Copeland had her leg be amputated and will possibly lose her fingers as the infection spread rapidly in her body. Breathing with a tube in her throat, she remains in critical condition at Augusta hospital.
The USA Today says a blood drive was set at the University of West Georgia on Tuesday to help the psychology graduate fight against the flesh-eating bacteria, which she contracted after the accident.
Copeland was sent to hospital on Tuesday last week right after the accident and doctors stapled 22 staples on her leg. She was also given pain medication, according to foxnews.com.
The 24-year old was diagnosed with “necrotizing fasciitis” – a flesh-eating disease of the deep layers of the skin.
