A 13-year-old girl who fell 10 metres during a school trip to the Grampians has awoken from a coma with no memory.
Faith Butt was rushed to Melbourne’s Royal Children’s Hospital on October 20 after falling head first down the side of Taipan Wall gorge onto rocks while on a Moama Anglican Grammar School camp.
The Herald Sun has reported the schoolgirl, from Mathoura in New South Wales, suffered physical injuries, including facial and skull fractures and a broken pelvis.
Although these injuries are currently healing, the teen is still suffering post-traumatic amnesia. Medical experts cannot predict if or when it will end.
Faith is off life-support, but still unable to communicate verbally. Her mother, Barb Cox, said her daughter has been “hesitant” of others, but appeared calm when she was with her.
“We don’t have any idea what is going to happen next,” Ms Cox told the Herald Sun. “It’s all just a little bit frightening.
“Her best friends were with her in a group … it was close to three hours they had to stand there and wait for paramedics to winch her out.
