NFL receiver Donte’ Stallworth and his girlfriend remained at Jackson Memorial Hospital Monday with second-degree burns after a hot-air balloon crash over the weekend in South Miami-Dade.
Stallworth and Soleil Guerrero are in stable condition at UM/JM Burn Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center, according to a statement from attorney Christopher Lyons.
The couple are receiving care for their wounds and pain. They were transferred from Kendall Regional Medical Center.
“As they are dealing with the effects of their injuries, the couple would like to thank the doctors and nurses for the compassionate care they are receiving as they are focusing on making a full recovery,” Lyons said.
“I appreciate all the prayers and well wishes more than you know. I feel lucky to be alive,” Stallworth said in a tweet to his Twitter followers after the crash. The receiver played last year with the New England Patriots and is a free agent.
Stallworth and Guerrero were injured after the balloon they were in hit power lines after a ride over the farm fields of South Miami-Dade.
