UGA Student Rushed to Hospital After Freak Accident

Mia Corte, a 20-year-old student at the University of Georgia, experienced a sudden and unexpected storm that uprooted a tree, critically injuring her last Tuesday afternoon, as reported by Fox 5.

Mia was sending a video of the storm to her boyfriend just moments before her phone died at 5:04 PM, thought to be the exact time the tree landed on her. Medics quickly rushed her to Piedmont Athens Regional Hospital, where she was treated for severe head trauma and extensive bodily injury.

Mia is a rising junior and communication sciences and disorders major at UGA. Her parents told the outlet that they consider her a brave spirit and a real fighter, which is exactly what she needs to make a recovery.

While the neurologists advise Mia to take a break and wait four to six weeks to do nothing, she is determined to take her classes online this summer. They have emphasized that she has a long road ahead of her.

The Corte family is amazed by the amount of love and support they have received from the Athens community, UGA, and the hospital staff.
