Jay Briscoe will forever be remembered as a legendary tag team wrestler. He was revered for his exceptional in-ring skills and his commitment to entertaining fans. Jay’s passing has left a deep impact on the wrestling community and they continue to mourn his loss. His daughters were also severely injured in the car accident, but it seems they are recovering well.
Jay’s daughters were taken into the care of medical professionals at the scene of the accident to provide support and assistance in coping with their traumatic experiences.
Jamin Pugh’s daughters, Jayleigh, aged 9, and Grace, aged 12, were admitted to the hospital and fought for their lives. It was said that their recovery was processing at a steady pace.
The organizers of the fundraiser to support the Pugh family posted a Facebook video providing new details. It was revealed that Jayleigh was released from the hospital and is at home now. As for Grace, she is currently undergoing rehabilitation for her legs.
“JJ, Briscoe’s nine-year old daughter was officially released from the hospital yesterday and is back home. She will have to wear her neck and back brace for four more weeks, at which point she will then return to the hospital to have her back brace surgically removed. She will obviously need continued physical therapy as she recovers but she was able to return home last night.
Gracie, Briscoe’s 12 year old daughter, will be moved to the rehab floor of the hospital so that she can focus more on physical therapy towards regaining use of her legs below the knee. She has feeling in her legs but is still unable to move them below the knees. She noted to her sister that her leg, which has felt as if its tingling nonstop, “felt normal” last night.
As previously reported, a donation page was set up by Briscoe’s family friend for fans to offer their help for the Pugh family. In fact, it ended up smashing its original goal of $50K, getting close to $300k. We here at Ringside News will continue to pray for their speedy recovery.
