Doctors Amazed by Woman’s Recovery After Motorbike Crash

Katie Keys

(Derry Now) – Medics have described a young Derry woman who survived an horrific motorbike crash as a ‘walking miracle’.

Katie Keys was seriously injured in the crash at Burt in County Donegal on July 13 last year. The 28-year-old Waterside woman, who was a passenger on the motorbike, spent two weeks in a coma in a hospital in Dublin.

She was later transferred to Altnagelvin Hospital in Derry where she received further treatment, before spending months recovering at Spruce House rehabilitation unit at the hospital. Katie was only allowed to go home in October last year.

However, she still receives the care and support of the Community Brain Injury Team which is based at the Foyle Disability Centre at Glen Road. CONTINUE
