  • An Emporia State University football player has a good use for some leftover donations his family received after losing everything in a wildfire.
    The school says freshman Justin Wilson recently gave $1,030 to the family of 23-year-old Yali (YAW'-lee) Huang (wahng). The Chinese exchange student 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 was leaving Monday for a hospital in Shanghai. It's located about 900 miles away from her family's home in Shenzhen.
    The family initially hoped to move her to a rehabilitation facility closer to Wichita, but her exchange student insurance didn't cover that type of care. The family was unable to find a facility that would take her.
