A GoFundMe has been set up for a Santa Clarita resident Stephanie Waddell who suffered multiple facial injuries Wednesday after falling on a pickaxe.
On Wednesday, Waddell was helping a friend move a few items and tripped over a workbench landing on a pickaxe, said Lisa McLaughlin, a friend and coworker of Waddell.
“She was helping a friend who is going through a divorce move a few things, when she tripped causing her to fall on the pickaxe which impaled her right below her left eye and it came out through the roof of her mouth,” McLaughlin said.
As a result of the fall, Waddell had several teeth knocked out and suffered multiple skull fractures.
“She will be needing many surgeries and implants to fix this trauma,” McLaughlin said.
The GoFundMe was created to help support Waddell and her family in this difficult time, McLaughlin said.
Waddell is described as a kind person by her friends and is always doing what she can to help others.
“Stephanie is a kind-hearted person who is always helping others despite her own battles with Lupus which has left her with limited hand use,” McLaughlin said.
Waddell remains in the hospital and has multiple surgeries ahead of her, according to McLaughlin.
“She is one of the sweetest people I know and a wonderful hard worker. Any donations will be greatly appreciated,” McLaughlin said.
