Progress is slowly being made with Abbie opening her eyes on Friday for the first time since the fall - but many unknowns remain.
'She is still on a respirator… they (her parents) are handling this about as well as can be expected,' she added.
'There's no timeframe on when she is going to be out of hospital.'
The family friend described Abbie as a 'fighter'.
A GoFundMe has been launched on behalf of Abbie's parents to ease the financial burden in the wake of the accident.
