Tallahassee, FL, USA
Darren Chiacchia remains in critical condition in an intensive care unit in Tallahassee. He sustained a severe head injury, and also contusions to both lungs with multiple rib fractures and a partially collapsed lung. Initial concerns about spinal injury were alleviated after extensive specialized testing. His pulmonary function is improving, but the major concern remains the head injury. His overall condition shows definite improvement, but he remains unconscious. His family and close friends are with Darren, and all remain optimistic he will continue a slow, but steady, recovery.
Darren riding Baron Verdi sustained injuries from a fall at Preliminary Fence # 5C at Red Hill Horse Trials in Tallahassee, Florida. Baron Verdi was apparently uninjured.
