East Tennessee Woman Injured In Afghanistan

A military family just across the Kentucky border in Tazewell, Tennessee is waiting for an update on one of their own after she was critically injured in Afghanistan.

Family members say an improvised explosive device injured 27 year old Private First Class Sue Downes and destroyed the humvee she was riding in.

The attack killed at least two other soldiers.

One of Downes' legs had to be amputated.

She will likely return to the United States for rehabilitation.
