Brielle was long boarding close to home on March 30 when she went over a manhole and fell. The high school student was unconscious for 13 minutes before her neighbors found her on a walk, according to security camera footage.
Michelle revealed, “She hit the cement so hard that it pushed the brain from the right side into her left side. She didn’t have a ton of scrapes on her body, it was mainly the brain.”
On April 24, Brielle was released from the hospital, and she is now dealing with hearing loss in her right ear, difficulty having long conversations and an impacted sense of taste.
“I do think people would look at what happened and think this must be awful, but it’s been so positive,” Brielle said in the video. “I think I’ve learned more from this experience than anything else that I’ve been through. It’s been great. I’ve learned to focus on school.”
