Five days after an SUV plowed into her and her children on a North Philadelphia street corner, Keisha Williams opened her eyes.
For the family members who have surrounded her at Temple University Hospital since the accident last Friday, it was a rare bright spot in a week filled with almost unimaginable grief, said the family's pastor, Elder Keith Goodman Sr.
"They are making it through," he said Thursday afternoon. "But it's extremely challenging."
Williams, who was taken to Temple in critical condition and afterward put in a medically induced coma, has since been able to squeeze a relative's hand - a small comfort to her family.
