Woman Involved in Deadly Montcalm County ORV Accident Remains in Hospital

A woman is still in the hospital after she fell through the ice in an ORV accident that killed a man.

Lee Avery died after his ORV went into a hole on Crystal Lake in Montcalm County on Saturday.

His passenger, Emily Patin, was taken to a Grand Rapids hospital in critical condition after she began having seizures.

Patin was put into a medically-induced coma after the seizures became uncontrollable.

Doctors started weaning her off the coma medication Wednesday morning.

Family and doctors were waiting in the afternoon to see how her body would respond.
