Almost $90,000 collected for Quebec woman with arms and legs amputated after crash
Almost $90,000 had been collected in donations as of Friday evening for the young Quebec woman who had her arms and legs amputated following a car crash on Christmas.
Sabryna Mongeon's sister started the fundraising campaign and is now hoping to collect $200,000.
Mongeon, 18, lost control of her vehicle Christmas morning and collided with a hydroelectric pole in western Quebec.
Her sister Samantha says electrical wires fell on the car and Mongeon was shocked by a charge of 14,500 volts when she exited the vehicle.
Mongeon was first treated at a hospital in Gatineau before being transferred to the burns unit of a Montreal hospital.
Upon emerging from a coma, she decided to have her arms and legs amputated.
Media reports said she was scheduled to undergo another surgery Friday to remove a larger part of her left arm.
The Canadian Press could not immediately reach Samantha for confirmation.
