A 13-YEAR-OLD Chirnside girl who was hospitalised in Newcastle with severe head and leg injuries after being hit by a car is back home.
Amy Clark was pulled from beneath a car in the Tweedmouth Retail Park and rushed to hospital by helicopter at the weekend.
She was treated for leg and head injuries, before undergoing further treatment as she was rushed by ambulance to Berwick Ambulance Station, on the Tweedmouth Trading Estate.
There, the Great North Air Ambulance helicopter was able to land and pick her up.
A GNAA doctor was able to treat her further, for a fractured skull and a very deep gash in her leg, as she was flown to the new emergency department Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle, in just 20 minutes.
There, she was put into an indued coma. Amy is now out of the coma and was well enough to leave hospital on Tuesday night.
Amy, a keen amateur actress, is set to perform as Cinderella in Duns and District Amateur Dramatic Society’s pantomime early next month.
It is hoped that she will eb well enough to rejoin rehearsals as soon as next Monday.
