After being the victim of a cruel prank by Harlem teenagers—dropping a shopping cart off of a shopping center—Marion Hedges will be returning to her real estate post at Prudential Douglas Elliman after recovery. A co-worker at Douglas Elliman, Margarita Barrera, told the Real Deal that she will back to work as soon as her injuries permit.
Hedges was thrown into a coma after the incidence and reportedly “had to relearn her name after regaining consciousness.”
The road to recovery will be long and arduous, a spokesperson for Mrs. Hedges told the Real Deal. She later confirmed interest in returning to the real estate market.
Despite suffering brain damage and the loss of vision in her left eye, Mrs. Hedges told news organizations on Wednesday that she forgives the teenagers. Mrs. Hedges has also expressed interest to meet the boy, Achilles Baskin, who tried to persuade the other two to not push the cart over the side of the structure.
The most devastating part is that the assailants showed little signs of remorse. Not Ms. Hedges. If we were in the market for a broker—a species not always known for its kindness and honesty—we know who we would call.
