Read for instance The Gazette and KDVR

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.
