Teen injured while car surfing is recovering

PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL (WFLX) -- The teenage girl who fell off the back of a moving vehicle while "car surfing" is making huge strides in the hospital.

According to her family, Hannah Huntoon underwent a surgery to relieve the building pressure inside her brain.

Hannah's dad, David, said his daughter's surgery was a success and she is in stable but critical condition.

He said the community support has been overwhelming and remains hopeful for his daughter's recovery.

"Starting to have a little anxiety and that I fact that I want to hear my daughter speak," said David Huntoon. "I really miss hearing her, but the rest of it, there's nothing I can do. You feel very weak."

David says Hannah will remain in a medically induced coma for the next couple of day to make sure her brain heals properly.

He's hoping others can learn a lesson from his daughter's accident.

The incident remains under investigation and charges could be filed against the driver.
