Canadian softball pitcher Sara Groenewegen weighs in on remarkable journey

Canadian softball pitcher Sara Groenewegen weighs in on remarkable journey LIMA, Peru — Sara Groenewegen has limited memory from her unexpected health ordeal just over a year ago. It's probably for the best as the jarring details are hard to get her head around. The Canadian softball pitcher spent about 10 days in a medically induced coma last summer after contracting Legionnaires' Disease, a severe form of pneumonia. She can remember the pain and confusion that followed. She also recalls doctors and family members trying to explain what happened to her. At the time, Groenewegen couldn't put weight on her legs, couldn't see properly and felt dazed. She had no idea that her father was told that her chances of survival were about three per cent.

"It startled it enough that it let Matt go," he said. "Matt came flying out. His whole half side was just covered in blood."

Elisa Rispoli said incident "was something out of a horror movie." It lasted only a couple of minutes, but "felt like an eternity," she wrote.

"It could have been so so much worse, and we are just feeling so thankful that we are all still sitting here as a complete family," her Facebook post read.

Matthew Rispoli was treated at the hospital for injuries to his hands and arms and is doing fine, she said.

Rampart Creek Campground was temporarily closed following the attack, a spokesperson for Parks Canada said in a press release. It reopened on Monday following an investigation into the incident.

The wolf believed to have attacked the family was tracked down and killed "to ensure public safety," spokesperson Lesley Matheson said.

"Veterinary tests have confirmed that the wolf was in poor condition and likely nearing the end of its natural life span. The wolf’s condition was likely a contributing factor for its unusual behavior and this remains a very rare incident," Matheson said.
