The dream vacation of a young family has worsened after her daughter suffered a life-changing injury while in a hotel pool.

Alyssa Ledbetter, 11, was on vacation in the United States with her mother, father and brother when a tragedy occurred after complaints of a severe headache.

The girl, from Whakatane, on the North Island of New Zealand, had been swimming with her cousins ​​and her brother when she abruptly withdrew from the water.

With symptoms including blurred vision, numbness in the legs and neck pain, Alyssa was soon placed on a stretcher and began to convulse.

Subsequent tests revealed that the young man had suffered a brain hemorrhage and that he would need sophisticated surgery to avoid lifelong damage.

According to her father, Dave, Alyssa is a typical preteen, who enjoys playing sports while spending time with friends and family.

"Alyssa is our young, adorable and exuberant 11-year-old daughter," she said.

"She has always been a healthy and active girl who loves hip-hop dancing, various sports such as field hockey, swimming and surfing, saving lives with her family."

After the incident in late July, it was immediately thought to be a serious head or spinal injury.

And the worst fears of the family came true when Alyssa had to be taken to surgery and her skull was punctured to relieve pressure and drain fluids.

Since the initial operation, the Ledbetters have started a GiveALittle page to raise money for medical expenses.

"Alyssa suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage when the weakened blood vessels in her brain ruptured and exploded from the high blood pressure of the arteries, causing bleeding in the brain," her father explained on the page.

"Neurological doctors have determined that open brain surgery is not an option, since the AVM is too deep inside your brain and the risk of permanent damage is too great, the only other realistic option is gamma knife radiosurgery." .

Now the focus has been changed to eventually move Alyssa to her home in New Zealand, where she will need more attention.

However, she would have to wait at least three more months for her brain to heal enough before she could undergo another surgery, which is not available in the country.
