Janelle Morrison, a professional triathlete from Calgary is responding well in a Kamloops hospital following a second surgery to repair “massive” internal and external injuries suffered in a horrific two-vehicle collision Sunday in B.C.

“It’s something you can’t describe, walking in and seeing your little girl like that,” said Morrison’s mom, Joy, who works as a nurse in the family’s hometown of Fort St. John, B.C.
