Horse Rider Wakes from Coma, After Life-Threatening Trauma

Horse Rider(CBC) – A Winnipeg horse rider on life support after suffering severe head trauma this summer has awoken from her coma earlier than many medical experts predicted.

Rebecca Fentum-Jones, 22, has made remarkable progress since she was thrown from her horse in mid-June, says her boyfriend Richie Rodgers.

She is now talking in a whisper and using a walker to get around, he said, after medical professionals warned the experienced horse rider may never wake up from her coma. CONTINUE
