Michelle Hurst, best known for her role of Miss Claudette in the Netflix series Orange Is The New Black, is finally waking up after 16 days in a medically induced coma following a car accident.
She suffered major injuries and to avoid movement while doctors did multiple surgeries near her spine, she was put in a medically induced coma.
Hurst spent 16 days in a coma before “waking up.” She is recovering in ICU at UNC Chapel Hill Hospital in North Carolina.
An online fundraiser with a goal of $5,000 has been set up to help Hurst pay off the medical expenses
The fundraising organizers have updated supporters about Hurst’s condition, saying:
“She is progressing slowly, but progressing! She is out of the medically induced coma and is responsive.”
We’re happy to hear that she’s getting better. Get well soon, Michelle!
