A mother of three was paralyzed after a tree limb fell on her during last week's snow storm, severing her spine. Jennifer Lane was enjoying the snow with her family in Legacy Park in Kennesaw on Friday when a tree branch, weighed down with snow, snapped and fell on top of her, paralyzing her from the waist down.
Neighbors stayed with Lane for 50 minutes before loading her into a Bronco and taking her to emergency officials. They say the ambulance was stuck at the front of the subdivision.
Her spinal column was severed and both lungs were punctured. She also has severe nerve damage and remains in the hospital.
We're proud to announce that $5,000 was raised over the weekend at Blackwell Elementary School. But the family will need all the help they can get. We understand that many are strapped around the holidays. But even a five dollar donation is helpful. The link to Jennifer Lane's GoFundMe page is below.
