Last weekend, Ashley and her friends were walking around the village of Ridgewood in New Jersey.
They happened to be on a street that does not have a sidewalk at all, but a section of grass that then meets a wall with a four-foot drop to the concrete below.
Being on the grass, Ashley had no idea that there was a significant drop down after the grass ended.
“The kids were walking on the grass portion, and Ashley decided to tumble on the grass, something she has done a million times so I’m sure in her mind, she’s thinking, I’m on grass not cement so I’ll be fine,” a GoFundMe page created for Ashley explained.
“Not realizing there was a 4-foot drop between the grass they were on and the actual street.”
“When she tumbled she fell neck/back first down the 3-4 foot rock wall, onto the asphalt of the roadway and fractured her skull, cut open a portion of her head, has bleeding on the brain in the canal that separates her right and left sides brain and has bruising/blood on the front brain.”
