The 5-year-old girl who has been hospitalized since a Feb. 4 car crash in Kansas City, Missouri, involving Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach Britt Reid has awakened from a coma.
According to a GoFundMe campaign created for the family of Ariel Young, the little girl has opened her eyes for the first time since the accident nearly two weeks ago.
“Ariel is awake,” the girl’s cousin, Tiffany Verhulst, wrote Monday on the fundraising site, which is nearing close to $500,000 in donations for Ariel’s ongoing medical expenses.
Ariel’s coma lasted 11 days.
Last week, Verhulst thanked donors for their support.
“Thank you to everyone who continues to pray for Ariel and support the family,” Verhulst wrote last Thursday. “She remains in a coma and there are no changes today. I’m hopeful that the next time I update this page, it’s with better news.”
The crash is currently being investigated by Kansas City authorities.
At this point, no charges have been filed against Reid, the son of Chiefs head coach Andy Reid.
The accident happened near the team’s home stadium in Kansas City.
