Feb 16, 2013 (Dayton Daily News - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
A Fairborn High School graduate serving as a civilian defense contractor in Afghanistan remained in critical condition today after she was critically injured, according to information from her employer.
Christina Maddock, 27, served as a field support representative for Intelligent Software Solutions, based in Colorado. Few details were available Friday and Saturday regarding the extent of her injuries, or how they occurred. She was taken to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, a U.S. hospital in Germany.
Maddock's "status has not changed," said Melissa Burkett, director of marketing and Alliances for the company, said this afternoon. "She remains in critical condition. Our thoughts and condolences are with her family."
The company has not provided additional details about Maddock's injuries or the circumstances that led to the incident. Family members could not be reached for comment Saturday.
Officials from the Department of Defense referred questions to her employer.
Maddock is a 2003 graduate of FHS, and began working for the information technology company in November. She was serving a year-long deployment that began in January, according to Kevin Moffat, intelligent software solutions vice president of the global service solutions division.
