An Austin Police officer is recovering after a serious ATV accident this past weekend.

Officer Tammy Barrett was on vacation in New Mexico when she went on an ATV ride.

Barrett went off a cliff and fell 45 feet, landing with the ATV on top of her. Rescuers said it took hours to free her and get her to the hospital.

Austin Cops for Charities say she will not walk again, but doctors say if she works hard she may be able to regain some feeling.
