Sorority girl dies after being hit in head with soccer ball

A University of Alabama freshman will be remembered during a prayer vigil on Wednesday, days after she died from complications stemming from a soccer injury that left her in a coma for three weeks. Allie Brodie, a freshman member of Christian sorority Alpha Delta Chi, was hit in the head by a soccer ball during an Oct. 7 game with friends, reported.

Brodie reportedly suffered a series of progressively worsening symptoms that resulted in an emergency surgery for bleeding in her brain, and a diagnosis of brain arteriovenous malformation, a condition with which she had been born with but ultimately triggered bleeding in her brain stem. According to a GoFundMe page set up on Brodie’s behalf, she was placed into a coma at University of Alabama Medical Center following a second surgery, and never recovered.
