Hi.

Dr. Paul Brazzell here.

I am so sorry that no one has responded to your question!

I dont think that she had a broken neck. I am concerned that she developed fluid in her lungs- Non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema- from her struggling.

This is a very sad story as this fluid in the lungs can happen secondary to seemingly inocuous events.

I would be happy to discuss this by phone with you if that would make you feel any better.

Paul
