Wildman would then be transported to Vancouver General Hospital, the injuries she sustained have left her paralyzed from the upper neck down and on full life support unable to speak, eat or breathe on her own.
During her time in the hospital, there have been a lot of unknowns yet surgery took place to stabilize Wildman’s neck and then a transfer to the Spine Unit in VGH where she continues to remain positive and focus on the next step being transferred to a rehabilitative ward.
Wildman will remain in Vancouver for an undetermined amount of time and then will need to be in a long term care facility in Vancouver as Fort St. John does not except ventilated patients.
