VANCOUVER — A promising young Argentinian ballerina who was severely injured in a rollerblading accident has been released from hospital.

Twenty-year-old Lucila Munaretto says the experience has been a positive one overall given how much she has learned about patience and gratitude.

Munaretto broke a number of bones, including her pelvis, and suffered severe head trauma when she rolled through a stop sign and hit a car in North Vancouver six weeks ago.

She shocked family and friends when she awoke from a coma in late August.

The day after her release Munaretto visited friends at her dance studio, and is otherwise focused on her recovery so she can dance again.

She attributes her speedy recovery thus far to both God and her love of dance.
