A YOUNG Isle of Wight woman remains in a coma almost two weeks after her car crashed into a wall in Lake.
Kelsey Biedler was taken to Southampton General Hospital in a critical state after receiving life threatening injuries in the accident.
Her parents, Paul and Debbie, have been keeping a bedside vigil at the hospital since the crash, while her only brother Reece, 18, has been visiting her daily.
Speaking to the County Press, Debbie said: "Kelsey has still not come round but has been ventilation free and off a life support machine since Sunday.
"The next phase of her recovery is expected to be slow. The doctors are unable to give us any answers until Kelsey is awake. She’s had a nasty chest infection and has been on a high dose antibiotics to prevent pneumonia.
"She is still sleeping but she does have some movement in her arms and legs but the movement is involuntary and sporadic.
"We are now waiting for a bed to become available in the rehab unit at St Mary’s Hospital.
"We have to thank everyone for the kind messages of support throughout this nightmare. I will make sure Kelsey is aware of them all when she wakes."
Kelsey, 23, a former Sandown High School pupil, was driving her Ford KA in the early hours of Saturday, August 4 when it careered into a wall on Lake Hill.
The owners of the house whose wall Kelsey crashed into, described the sound as 'like a bomb going off’.
Her passengers — a 26-year-old man and two 23-year-old women — were taken to St Mary’s Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to police.
A Facebook page has been set up to send messages of support to Kelsey and her family, and already it has more than 1,300 'likes’.
