Electric shock girl home soon
AN 11-year-old Perth girl has spoken her first word – “Mum” – almost a month after doctors predicted she would remain in a vegetative state following a severe electric shock at her family’s public housing property.
Denishar Woods was apparently left with a catastrophic brain injury when she was shocked with up to 230 volts AC after she touched a garden tap at a Beldon property on March 3.
Her mother Lacey Harrison posted on Facebook that she had received the best news from doctors on Tuesday.
They told her that Denishar’s rapid progress meant she could be sent home from Princess Margaret Hospital in as little as three months.
