Two parents who lost their one-year-old son while fleeing from the Cold Springs Fire more than one week ago are showing signs of improvement after suffering from severe burns. Jamie Hyland, 26, and 31-year-old Jacob Hyland also lost their unborn child. In an update posted on Thursday, Sept. 17 to a GoFundMe page for the couple, a family member said Jamie is "very alert and talking as much as she has strength." Though the burning to Jamie's chest is "extensive," her wound care is going well and her pain tolerance is high, the update reads. The family member called Jamie a "rockstar." Jamie has also regained her ability to eat, and is working with physical and respiratory therapists. "She’s still working on coughing up gunk, but all her hard work is strengthening her throat and lung muscles so hoping she can get the gunk out soon. She is working with a voice therapist as well," the update reads.
