Former 'Bachelor' contestant's daughter on life support after skateboarding accident

A former contestant on “The Bachelor” urges parents to be adamant about having their children wear helmets after her daughter suffers a broken skull in a skateboarding accident that has sustained her.

Michelle Money, who participated in Season 15 of “The Bachelor” in 2011, posted a harrowing photo Instagram Monday from her daughter, Brielle, 15, in the intensive care unit at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City.

Brielle is in a medically induced coma after a “severe brain trauma” and a broken skull in a “terrible skateboard accident,” Money wrote.

“Please – I’m asking for prayers,” she wrote. “I believe in the power of communicating with whatever God believes in. The energy of your conscious focus to send healing to my daughter is real. In whatever form you communicate with your Higher Power, please as a desperate mother, I beg you to do that.

“She now needs support and healing. And if you could send one for me too, I would appreciate it. This is the worst experience of my life. “

Money also begged parents to ensure that their children wore safety equipment.


Brielle was found by neighbors hiking and calling 911, according to Money.

“My heart is eternally grateful,” she wrote. “Thanks to everyone who sent prayers, messages, and love.

“Brielle has been through so much this year. She has proven how strong she is. I know she will continue. “
