Bobbie Jo Brooker, 11, was riding on a pontoon boat with her family on Pomme de Terre Lake when she fell overboard and became tangled in the boat's propeller. She was rushed to a nearby hospital and stabilized, then airlifted to Cox South. She had eight cut ribs, punctured lungs and injuries to her liver. After receiving intense care at CoxHealth, Bobbie Jo has recovered and is back to her normal life.
"I look at her every day and think what an amazing miracle she's been," her dad says.
