On the evening of Wednesday, January 17th, Erika Margarita Otero, a Columbian woman, fell from a fourth-floor balcony in the Polanco area of Mexico City. After landing on the cement sidewalk below, she miraculously survived but suffered multiple life-threatening internal injuries, fractures, and traumas.

Upon hearing the impact, neighbors found Erika lying on the sidewalk, unconscious and bleeding. They immediately called 911. Paramedics arrived and provided aid, and Erika was immediately transferred to a nearby hospital, where she underwent three immediate surgeries. She remained in a coma for ten days. Erika is healing, but her recovery will be long and tedious.

Doctors removed one kidney and her spleen and surgically repaired her hip and pelvis. She also had fractured ribs and other injuries. They placed steel plates and screws inside her legs so she could eventually walk again. She'll need extensive physical therapy to learn to walk again and must stay off her feet for four to six months to allow her legs to heal.

These funds are requested to help pay the enormous current and future medical bills, including ambulatory transport and other transportation expenses, surgeries, hospital rooms, medications, food, and other medical-related personal expenses.

This family has already depleted their life savings. Your assistance is desperately needed and greatly appreciated. Thank you.
