Commonwealth Games Scotland is delighted to hear that Team Scotland judoka Stephanie Inglis has arrived back in Scotland as she continues her recovery from serious head injuries sustained in a motorbike accident in Vietnam.
Stephanie was flown by air ambulance to Edinburgh from Thailand, where she had been transferred for treatment, and has now been moved to a specialist unit at the city’s Western General Hospital.
Stephanie was placed in a medically induced coma following the accident, from which she was recentlywoken. She was moved to a hospital in Bangkok at the end of last month, where her condition improved enough for her to make the journey to Scotland.
A crowd funding campaign, set up by friends to cover her medical costs, has raised over £300,000 with donations coming in from around the world.
Our positive thoughts remain with Stephanie and her family as she takes the next step in her recovery.
