Perth girl fights medical odds after garden tap electrocution

Two weeks ago Denishar Woods was pronounced brain-dead. 

But yesterday 7News reported she has defied doctors' expectations and was sitting up in a wheelchair. 

On March 3, the 11-year-old Perth girl was shocked by 230 volts after touching a garden tap at her family home in the suburb of Beldon. 

Yet a week ago her progress changed from serious to stable as she was taken off her respirator and began breathing on her own.  

"Last we were told she wouldn't make it off life support to now, watching her get in the hoist and get in the wheelchair," her mother Lacey Harrison told 7News. 

"I just want to bring my baby outside," she said. 

An investigation is under way to determine what exactly caused the shock.

"I want answers because I'm going home every night and reliving the moment me and my daughter dropped to the ground," Ms Harrison said.
