A young Lockport resident’s accident on June 7 had left the entire community devastated.

Four-year-old Gabby Matlak had fallen into the pool at a friend’s house, sustaining life-threatening injuries, and was subsequently taken to the Lurie Children’s Hospital. After days of excruciating agony, Gabby’s condition has taken a turn for the better.

According to Becca Matlack-Hodges, Gabby’s aunt, her breathing tube has been removed and that was “a very big step for her.”
