HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. — It’s been two weeks since Harpers Ferry National Historical Park chief ranger Ryan Levins suffered a head injury in a cycling competition accident.
Levins has been at Inova Fairfax Hospital in Virginia since July 3 where he was placed in a medically induced coma. He has shown some improvements in recent weeks, park superintendent Rebecca Harriett said.
“He’s making slow but steady improvements,” but Harriett said, he has a long way to go.
Levins has opened his eyes and may soon be transferred to a different room, Harriet said.
Meanwhile, well wishes have been pouring into the park.
“Get well cards are being sent to the park,” Harriett said. “I’ve been taking those in [to the hospital] about once a week.”
Levins was in a chain reaction accident. Another biker in the same accident died.
A gofundme page has also been established to help with expenses.
