To find out about the terrible accident that occurred on Tuesday when onlookers sais Burke completed a trick when she fell onto her head. She was rushed to Salt Lake City hospital in a helicopter. She underwent surgery on Thursday to repair a tore artery (vertebral artery, located behind the neck it provides blood to the brain) that caused bleeding to the brain, she was put into a coma to reduce the swelling and pressure to the brain.
“With injuries of this type, we need to observe the course of her brain function before making definitive pronouncements about Sarah’s prognosis for recovery,” said Dr. William Couldwell, the neurosurgeon who performed the operation, in a statement released by Burke’s publicist. “Our neuro critical care team will be monitoring her condition and response continuously over the coming hours and days.”
Her husband Rory Bushfield who is by her bedside said…
“Sarah is a very strong young woman, and she will most certainly fight to recover,”
