Actress Kathryn Prescott, 30, is in a critical condition after being hit by a cement truck in New York City, as announced by her twin sister, Megan on Instagram.
According to Megan, her sister was lucky to be alive after the accident which happened on September 7th.
Megan took to her Instagram page to write that: “I received the most terrifying phone call I’ve ever received in my life on Tuesday evening. My twin sister Kathryn was hit by a cement truck while crossing a road in New York on the 7th September.”
“After fighting through complex surgery some of Kathryn’s injuries include: broken pelvis in two places, both of her legs, her foot and her left hand,” Megan wrote, adding that her twin “narrowly avoided paralysis.”
“The doctors are hopeful that she will make a full recovery but this will only be possible with the correct care right now.”, she continued.
Speaking about the need for her to go over to NYC to care for her sisters and the US embassy rejecting her request, Megan wrote that:
“She is alone in New York with no family members. I need help getting to New York to support her recovery. I will have to help her until she can start to walk again. I need to be there to help her with literally everything as she will be able to do incredibly little by herself. She will be in rehab for a very long time and will need 24/hr care even after she leaves the hospital.”
“I don’t know what to do with myself. I have to be able to get to my sister to care for her and right now I have no way of doing so. I know there is so much going on in the world right now but I am heartbroken that I can’t be with my twin sister in this horrible time in her life when she desperately needs me—I don’t want her to go through this alone.”, she cried.
Responding to that, Kathryn’s co-star in Netflix’s 2018 film Dude, Alexandra Shipp, wrote: “This is so terrible!! I’m sending you guys love. I’m going to figure out how to help!”
Kathryn and Megan rose to fame after they played Emily and Katie Fitch on teen drama television series Skins after which Kathryn went on to star as Carter Stevens in the 2014 MTV drama Finding Carter.
