Its been almost a week since Olympic rider Darren Chiacchia was hospitalized. Now his family is speaking out. Chiacchia suffered life-threatening injuries after his horse landed on him at an event in Tallahassee Saturday. Chiacchie has several broken ribs and a brain injury. Despite his condition, his family remains optimistic that hell make a full recovery.
