CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. – The mother of Bailey Wind, one of the two survivors of the deadly Northway crash, spoke with NEWS10 by phone Friday.
Dawn Wind told NEWS10 that her daughter Bailey is making an amazing recovery, walking up the stairs today even with factures in her neck and a broken jaw.
She also spoke of how at just 17 – bailey is being forced to say goodbye to her first love.
Dawn says it's been heartbreaking to watch her daughter grieve the loss of her first love, Chris Stewart, who did not survive the accident.
The accident left several vertebrae in Bailey's neck fractured, and her jaw set back in place with titanium plates.
But, Dawn says her daughter's will to recover is nothing short of amazing.
Through it all, Dawn says Bailey and her family have been lifted by the support from both the Shen and Shaker communities – and beyond.
