KELOWNA - A Kelowna family is in Vancouver as their 12-year-old daughter fights for her life after a disatrous ATV accident last week.

According to a GoFundMe page, Abby Kimmel fell from and was trapped by an ATV in Fort St. John on June 29. She was unable to breathe for an extended period of time.

Kimmel fell into a coma and was flown to Vancouver for treatment. She's currently battling critical brain swelling.

According to the GoFundMe page, Kimmel's father and seven siblings are by her side.

The GoFundMe page was set up to help the family financially during this tough time. As of this writing, it's raised more than $7000 in a day.
