Update on Sledding Accident

Police say doctors are optimistic about recovery.

Port Washington Patch has confirmed that two girls – not one, as originally revealed to Patch – were injured in a sledding accident on Sunday.

At the Port Washington Police Commissioners meeting on Tuesday morning, Detective Tony Guzzello provided an update on the girls’ status. One girl had an injury to the back of her head and is at a local hospital where she is fairing well. The other girl remains in a medically induced coma and was stable through the night. Doctors are optimistic that she will make a recovery. At this time she is listed in critical condition.

Police Commissioner Dave Franklin asked Guzzello to let the families know the community is thinking of them.

To those at the meeting, Franklin said, “Keep them in your prayers.”

Don't shoot the messenger but I've got to say this....... I'm taken aback by the banners and ribbons being put up around town. I hope that this child recovers and has a great life. Just take a second to think about all the children in this town who are suffering from far worse circumstances. Does the community rally for them? Put up banners and ribbons to support their struggles? I can answer that with a certain NO. I'm sorry for the struggles that her accident has put her and her family through. It's just plain selfish to put their child and her unfortunate circumstance on display around town in front of people who's child might not even have a chance at life. Bring on the negative comments about what I just said but know that its an awful truth.
