Shock twist as Melbourne Show Roller Coaster victim wakes up after more than two months in a coma but her relatives say ‘she’s not out of the woods’ yet

A woman who was struck by a rollercoaster has finally woken up after being in a coma for more than two months. 

Shylah Rodden, 26, suffered brain damage and injuries to her pelvis, arms, legs and back when she was hit by the Rebel Coaster carriage rollercoaster at the Royal Melbourne Show on September 25.

She was collected by the ride, which it can travel up to 70km/h, while trying to retrieve her phone from underneath the tracks. 

Ms Rodden was immediately rushed to the Royal Melbourne Hospital and placed in a medically-induced coma.

But on Wednesday, the hospital revealed that the young woman was now in a stable condition.
