Commander Josslyn Shepard found amid London rubble. Shepard immediately transferred to temporary medical facilities; is now under care of Major Dr. Karin Chakwas.


Dr. Chakwas’ medical report follows:


Patient’s injuries are thus:


-Simple fracture, left ulna

-Compound fracture, right humerus

-Right leg bones essentially pulverized

-Sternum fractured in two places

-Fractured clavicle

-Cracked mandible (right side)

-Several cracked vertebrae

-Punctured right eardrum


May have damage to brain and nervous system; cannot determine level of damage until patient regains consciousness. Additionally, some muscles may atrophy, depending on duration of convalescence. Considering how long Shepard was buried, and the extent of her injuries, it is a miracle she survived at all.
