Nurse hit by rock thrown at her car on the way to shift might lose her eye – Let’s all help for her recovery

Nurse hit by rock thrown at her car on the way to shift might lose her eye – Let’s all help for her recovery

A labor and delivery nurse’s life has been changed after a rock came crashing through her window while she was on the way to work. Pam is a nurse from Concord, California and she was driving to the hospital for a shift, when a rock the size of a grapefruit shattered her window and hit her in the face. She suffered multiple broken bones in her face and a severely damaged right eye.

Pam said:

“As I was driving along, all of a sudden, I had heard this loud, big, and then this intense pain in my face, and then I couldn’t see anything. I was desperately trying to get Siri to call 911 from my watch, but nothing was happening.”

Bleeding, and barely able to see, she coasted her car to the side of the road and tried to call 911. Pam, who thought she was going to die, was eventually rushed to hospital, having suffered multiple broken bones in her face and a severely damaged right eye.

Three surgeries followed, one of which took place on Christmas Day, but reports say she might yet lose the eye altogether. Authorities believe the rock may have been thrown from an overpass, though have not yet found any suspects as they continue to investigate.

Pam’s husband, Steven Burnett, has created a GoFundMe page to try and raise funds to pay for his wife’s treatment and rehabilitation. Given her current condition – Pam may need further surgeries moving forward – it could be months before she’s able to return to work at the Contra Costa Regional Medical Center.

“I’ve never been so sad in my life about anything, just terrible. I’m trying to stay strong and help her get through this and we’re gonna get through,” said Steven.
