Six-time Olympic swimmer champion injures her spine
June 11 , 2014
One of the greatest Olympic swimmers in America recently severed her spine in an accident. Reports suggest that the 41-year-old Amy Van Dyken Rouen was taken to the hospital after the crash and is now in a stable condition.
Her husband told the media that Dyken Rouen wasn't breathing after the ATV crashed and she began to gasp for air after he "raised up the back of her neck."
"Amy awake within hours of surgery acting like her typical spunky, boisterous, ebullient self and has spent the last 24 hours entertaining her family and her medical staff in the ICU," her family says.
