SALT LAKE CITY — A University of Utah football player critically injured in a scooter crash is making a fast recovery, and he talked exclusively with FOX 13 News from his hospital bed.
Moana Ofahengaue is walking and talking. He’s been upgraded from critical to good condition after suffering a head injury during a moped accident.
“Definitely ready to go home,” Ofahengaue said.
That’s a strong statement considering just 11 days ago he was unresponsive. Photos provided by his mother show Moana Ofahengaue right after his accident. He is wearing a device to stabilize his head and monitor his brain for swelling.
“It was just fractured ear to ear on the back of my head,” Moana Ofahengaue said.
“It was scary definitely,” his mother, Carey, added.
