Kelowna child in a coma after being trapped under a ATV

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help support her family

A Kelowna child is in a coma after she was trapped under an ATV, leaving her with traumatic injuries.

On June 29, 12-year-old Abby Kimmel was flown to Vancouver from Fort St. John B.C., where she was visiting family, after being without oxygen for a prolonged period of time.

Now she is battling for life; the major concern is a critical swelling of the brain.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help her father, who is the sole caregiver of the family.

“Energetic and full of life, bright-eyed Abby has seven siblings and her parents who need support while they stay at her side, away from their home in Kelowna, B.C. Her adoring father is the sole provider of the family. He remains at the hospital, unable to work; hoping and praying for a miracle,” the GoFundMe page reads.

Over $10,000 has been raised of the $20,000 goal.
