Sledding accident puts woman in coma

January 19, 2011

Noblesville resident Holly Jones, 20, is in critical condition and in a medically induced coma after a sledding accident on a hill in Forest Park. Jones was airlifted from Noblesville's Riverview Hospital to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis Sunday night after the accident. Jones and her cousin were riding an inflatable tube and hit a dip in the hill, propelling her from the tube. She landed on the back of her head, causing a basal skull fracture. Jones’ parents said emergency workers told them there have been numerous sledding accidents on the hill in the past.
