A fatal car wreck that claimed the lives of four University of Georgia students and left one seriously injured galvanized the college community of Athens, Georgia. An outpouring of support and well wishes flooded the internet in regards to the April 27th accident. The surviving student has just been transferred to Atlanta’s Shepherd Center.
21-year-old Agnes Kim of Snellville, Georgia was the sole survivor of a deadly car accident that occurred on April 27. The accident claimed the lives of four other students in the car with Kim.
In the accident, Kim sustained a brain injury and has been transferred from Athens Regional Medical Center to Atlanta’s Shepherd Center. She was admitted to the Shepherd Center’s Brain Injury Unit, Disorders of Consciousness Program.
The program specializes in the treatment of patients who are in a semi-comatose or minimally conscious state. Key components of the program include reducing medical acuity, preventing medical complications, and continually measuring arousal and attention to the environment. Also addressed within the program are neuropharmacological management, nutritional management, maximizing mobility, and the education and training of family members.
The Shepherd Center specializes in the medical treatment, research, and rehabilitation of patients suffering from brain and spinal cord injuries.
Kim’s family is appreciative of the outpouring of support they have received from friends, family, and strangers alike. However, they do request privacy at this time. A crowdfunding webpage has been set up through the YouCaring website to help offset medical expenses. At the site, updates will be made and comments allowing for encouragement are allowed.
