(nzherald.co.nz) – There is a long road ahead but a miraculous full recovery is expected for young crash victim Hollie Snell.

The 16-year-old was involved in a two-car fatal crash on November 18. She suffered head injuries so severe her family was told she would not survive.

Due to Hollie’s wishes, the family spent the first week preparing to donate her organs, her heartfelt story shared on the front page of the Rotorua Daily Post on Saturday, November 24.

But after day 12 in hospital Hollie, showing signs of improvement, was taken off life support and moved to the high dependency unit.

Now, after 23 days in hospital, Hollie has reached level two of the recovery stages of critical brain injuries. CONTINUE
