IRON COUNTY, Mich. (WJMN) – Donations are being raised to help two Iron River children who were in a sledding accident last week.
The children were riding together on a sled at the Caspian Ski Hill when they veered off the hill and ran into a tree. The six-year-old boy and the seven-year-old girl were transported to Aspirus Iron River Hospital, and then flown via helicopter to Milwaukee for further treatment.
Their injuries are not life-threatening, but both will have a long road to recovery.
A GoFundMe has also been set up to help the young girl’s family with medical costs as she will need multiple surgeries on her leg.
