Sunnyside parks commissioner still in critical condition

A week after suffering a massive stroke, Sunnyside Parks and Recreation Commissioner Ellen Bird is still in critical condition as of this morning (Monday).

Bird is currently at Yakima Regional Hospital, where she is listed as being in critical condition.

Bird suffered the stroke after she was taken from last week's Sunnyside City Council meeting.

Bird finished speaking before Council when she complained of being dizzy. Bird was transported to Sunnyside Community Hospital, where her condition worsened. She was then taken to Yakima, where she has since been in critical condition.
