The family of the St. Louis teen who was violently attacked in a viral video shared an update on her condition, saying the road ahead remains long and uncertain.

The video showed Kaylee, 16, having her head repeatedly pounded on the pavement in the March 8 assault near Hazelwood East High School in Spanish Lake, Missouri, just outside St. Louis.

According to family attorney Bryan Kaemmerer, Kaylee suffered a fractured skull, resulting in life-threatening brain swelling and bleeding.

He said she has not regained consciousness in the week or so since the fight, Fox 2 reported.

The following day, police arrested a 15-year-old girl in connection with the fight. She’s currently being held by St. Louis County Family Court on assault charges.

After the attack went viral, Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey said the suspect who brutally beat Kaylee in the violent brawl should be tried as an adult and charged with murder if the offense rose to a homicide.

“We’ve got to reform our juvenile system to ensure that these sorts of issues are addressed,” Bailey previously said. “I’m going to be following this case closely. I think there needs to be some accountability in our juvenile system. People are starting to notice that, and it’s causing problems across the State of Missouri.”

“We are so grateful for the amazing medical staff who have been working tirelessly to give her the best possible chance at a full recovery. We know she has a very long road ahead of her, but we remain hopeful,” the family said in a statement on Kaylee’s Recovery funds page.
