Olympic champion swimmer Amy Van Dyke-Rouen has been moved from intensive care to a regular hospital room, nine days after severing her spinal cord in an all-terrain vehicle accident.
Hospital spokeswoman Jamie Grimm says the six-time gold medalist was in good condition and moved from the ICU on Sunday morning.
Van Dyken-Rouen was injured June 6 when the ATV she was driving hit a curb and hurtled off a drop-off near Show Low. The accident left her paralyzed, though her family says it’s unclear if she will remain that way.
Amy, this is Barbara Crosier from Speedo and I wanted to let you know that I am thinking about you and praise you for your strength. Having you near your family is the best thing for your recovery.
