MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Well-known Minnesota musician Channy Leaneagh, of POLIÇA, is recovering after she fell and broke her back attempting to deal with one of winter’s biggest headaches: ice dams.
On Thursday, the band said Leaneagh was attempting to deal with the ice dams on her roof last week when she fell.READ MORE: 'It Was Just Nuts': Severe Storms Leave Residents With Damage, Debris, And Outages Crews Battle Fire In Northeast Minneapolis
“Thankfully she is expected to make a full recovery and is already walking a bit with the help of a very fashionable back brace,” the band said.
However, the injury has created a financial burden due to mounting medical bills, need for ongoing childcare and her inability to work for the next four to five months.MORE NEWS: Minnesota Weather: High Temps Could Reach 90 Degrees Sunday
