The 22-year-old woman seriously injured last month when she fell down an elevator shaft at Fenway Park has been released from the hospital, according to her father and a spokesman for Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
Lizzy Scotland of Brigantine, N.J., fell two stories down the shaft after a Red Sox game on May 16. She was not responsive when firefighters arrived on scene.
Scotland was released from the hospital Thursday, and her father said Saturday that she had been moved to a rehabilitation hospital in Boston.
“She is improving every day. Making great progress,” said John Scotland in a phone interview. “We’re very hopeful of her condition, and hopeful that she will make a really, really great recovery.”
It is too early to say whether Scotland will make a full recovery, but she is able to communicate enough to tell her parents if she is in pain or not, he said. Improving her communication will be part of her rehabilitation.
