A teenage girl whose life was saved when she was pulled from a burning car seconds before it exploded is yet to learn her two best friends are dead.
Kendall Murray is still heavily sedated as she recovers from broken arms, a broken pelvis and three degree burns over a third of her body following the crash in Plano, Texas on February 10.
The 16-year-old was travelling with volleyball teammates Lilly Davies and Samantha Sacks, also both 16, when their car careered off a road and hit a tree.
The Porsche Macan, which being driven by Lilly, burst into flames but witnesses pulled Kendall from the wreckage before it exploded.
Kendall is in ICU at Medical City Plano’s burn unit and has recently been able to breathe without a ventilator.
Meanwhile, funerals have taken place for her two friends.
Her mum Terri told NBC: ‘It’s going to be a long journey, We’ve been told by many hospital staff that this is not a sprint, it’s a marathon.
‘When she does wake up fully and she’s able to understand, it’s going to be a very difficult conversation.’
So far a crowdfunding page has raised more than £24,000 for her medical expenses.
