WEST BOUNTIFUL — The community is rallying behind Melissa Cochran, a West Bountiful woman who was injured in the London attack in March.
See more details about the fundraisers below.
Payne also started a GoFundMe account for his sister. As of Thursday afternoon, people had donated more than $83,000. The initial goal had been $50,000.
Cochran and her husband, Kurt Cochran, were in London to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary when the London terror attack occurred.
The couple was on the Westminster Bridge when they were struck by an SUV that plowed into a group of pedestrians. Kurt Cochran was thrown from the bridge and died.
Melissa Cochran suffered a broken leg, broken rib and cuts to her head. Doctors cleared Cochran to fly home last week, and she is healing faster than expected, her brother said.
