ND burn victim has yet to see newborn daughter

A North Dakota farmer who has been in critical condition and unable to speak since he was burned in an accident a month ago has a newborn daughter waiting for him.

DICKINSON, N.D. — A North Dakota farmer who has been in critical condition and unable to speak since he was burned in an accident a month ago has a newborn daughter waiting for him.

Brian Chorne, who lives with his wife and family on a farm near South Heart, is hospitalized at a Colorado burn center. Details of the accident are not clear because he hasn’t been able to talk about it.

His wife, Melody Chorne, gave birth to Kenzie on Valentine’s Day. Because children under the age of 12 are not allowed on the burn center floor, Brian has yet to see his daughter.

The couple has two other daughters and four children from previous relationships.

Melody says her husband is doing “amazingly well” under the circumstances.
