A family friend of Kaylee Carfantan, the 14-year-old Roma who was critically injured in a horse-riding accident last week, has started a Go-Fund-Me page to help the girl’s family with ongoing costs.
The accident happened last Wednesday (January 2nd) in Roma and has left the teenager with a punctured lung, cracked ribs, ruptured liver, a sliced kidney, a tear in her oesophagus and internal bleeding after her horse reared and moved backwards landing on the girls stomach, with its roping saddle still on.
The roping saddle dug into her, causing significant damage, before a Lifeflight helicopter flew her from Roma hospital to Brisbane's Queensland Children's Hospital.
The account has been set up with the aim to help the Carfantan family, with travel costs, food, accommodation, medical costs and help cover loss of wages during the time – the goal is $30,000 with $2525 having been raised so far.
