A 47-year-old mother of two who was critically injured by a shopping cart thrown at her from four stories above, will survive, according to her husband Michael Hedges, reports WCBS.

Hedges said his wife, Marion Hedges, has a difficult recovery ahead due to damage to her brain. On Wednesday she was in stable condition at a hospital in Harlem but remained unconscious, reports the New York Post.

"Her prognosis at a minimum involves many months of painful rehabilitation," Michael said, according to WCBS.

Marion Hudges was on the ground floor of a mall's garage in East Harlem Sunday night, when she was suddenly hit by a shopping cart thrown from the 4th floor. Two 12-year-old boys have been arrested for tossing the cart, according to police.

"They're a bunch of stupid kids, they made a bad decision. She was in the wrong place at the wrong time," a law-enforcement source told the New York Post.

Hedges' father in law told the Post, that she suffered some broken bones and some cranial injuries.

The New York Daily News reported that Hedges has worked with charities for 25 years and was buying candies for the Stanley M. Isaacs Neighborhood Center when the accident occurred.

The 12-year-old boys have been charged with felony assault and misdemeanor criminal possession of a weapon.
