Best friend in Critical condition in the ICU after 30 ft fall

Hello

Hope you are all ok.

Two days ago, I and a close family friend witnessed one of my best friends called Helen fall 30 ft over a balcony in a public place after she lent back to far without releasing and she is now fighting for her life in a induced and natural coma in the ICU.

When she fell I and a close family friend tried to grab her hands but it was too late and after she hit the concrete floor I and my close family friend called 999 for an ambulance. Also my family friend ran down to her and gave her lifesaving first aid until the paramedics arrived.

She received severe skull, brain and spinal injuries when she fell the 30 ft.

The family friend who was with me and Helen when she fell 30 ft over the balcony has mentioned it to her church today at her new minster induction service and they will pray that Helen pulls through.

Will keep you all updated on Helen's condition.

Wow... how old is she? Prayer works and all u can do right now is pray. But visite her often, and talk to you. She can hear you. Encourage her to pull through. She will!! Sending prayers as well.

Hello Mj29

Helen will be 31 next month.

I agree with you that prayer does defiantly work because Helen is still fighting to stay with us!!

Also I agree that she might be able to us because I was in a coma last year for 13 weeks and I could hear voices and sounds around me.

Have also been visiting her everyday with my family friend, who was with me and Helen when she fell, since the accident 3 days ago.

Just spoke to my family friend who was with me and Helen when she fell, on the phone and our new minster at our church this morning said to her "I am very sorry to hear about what happened to Helen 3 days ago and we are all praying that she pulls through."

My family friend even put up a prayer for Helen on the prayer board at our church, as well.

Thank you for your prayers.
