The final person hospitalized in the accident involving the Holy Cross Women’s Rowing team was released on Monday.
Anne Comcowich, a Sophomore political science and philosophy major from Hopkinton, left Lawnwood Regional Medical Center in Fort Pierce, Florida. She will continue to receive treatment at a local area hospital in Massachusetts.
“I am so grateful for the kindness, warmth, and love shown to all of us affected by the accident. We’ve been uplifted in countless ways by the gestures of so many whose gracious acts will never be forgotten, though their identities are unknown to us,” Comcowich said in a statement following her release. “I came to the hospital broken, but I left as one, not only physically but with the community.”
Women’s Rowing head coach Patrick Diggins was released late last week. Diggins is in his 35th year coaching the Holy Cross team where he is also alumni. He was also a rower at St. John’s High School in Shrewsbury.
Last week two freshman students, Bianca McIver from Scarsdale, NY and Maggie O’Leary from Waterbury, CT, were also released.
Sophomore Hannah Storm, a Psychology major from Marion, MA, was airlifted to a Massachusetts hospital early last week to continue treatment.
