Just learned that young lady Baylee Neal from Rowlett suffered a serious head injury and was knocked unconscious in a barrel racing competition Jan. 14 near Terrell.
She was rushed by ambulance to Children’s Hospital, where X-rays and CT scans that evening revealed Baylee had a fractured skull and bleeding within and outside of her brain.
According to family sources, the good news is that the bleeding was isolated and her vital signs are good. She was in critical condition but a stable state last week.
Sources said doctors decided to place her in a medically-induced coma to reduce pressure on her brain to avoid or at least reduce swelling.
We just spoke to Baylee’s mother at Children’s Hospital but she could not speak to us at the time.

A new family-oriented Burger House location opened last Monday in Rockwall in the shopping center on the south side of I-30 next to Friday’s, where Double Dave’s Pizza used to be.
According to the corporate and franchise owners, business was great and beyond expectations for their first week. They had standing room only during three weeknights!
Burger House first opened in Dallas in 1951 and this is their seventh location. Owners attribute their success to fresh and healthy high-quality products, great service and lots of their secret seasoning salt that they put on everything from burgers to fries.
