Six-time Gold medalist Van Dyken-Rouen out of ICU after ATV fall
Amy Van Dyken Rouen has been moved from an Arizona ICU to a regular hospital room after her ATV accident nine days ago.
Six-time Olympic swimming gold medalist Amy Van Dyken-Rouen is out of a Scottsdale intensive care unit after she severed her spine in an ATV accident a little more than a week ago.
She moved from the ICU to a regular hospital room on Sunday morning, and she was reportedly in good spirits, according to the AP. Van Dyken Rouen is paralyzed, but her family isn’t sure if it’s indefinite.
Here's the view from her new room.
Van Dyken-Rouen’s ATV went over a curbed embankment nine days ago, and she fell five to seven feet. She was found unresponsive by her husband, but was quickly airlifted to a local hospital to undergo surgery on her spine. She ultimately fractured her spinal cord at the T11 vertebra.
Van Dyken-Rouen, 41, won four gold medals at the 1996 Games and two more in Sydney in 2000.
