The family of a Chinese exchange student who was critically injured while attending Emporia State University is seeking help to pay for her rehabilitation.

Twenty-three-year-old education student Yali Huang was flown to a Wichita hospital in November after being struck by a Jeep while walking across a street.

After coming out of a 10-week coma, she's ready to be moved to a rehabilitation facility. But her exchange student insurance doesn't cover that type of care, and she's not ready to travel to a facility closer to her home -- Shenzhen, a city in southern China.

University students plan to collect donations Saturday at the Chinese Spring Festival Gala. A fund also has been set up at the Bank of America in Wichita.
