BRITISH author JK Rowling has wished a speedy recovery to one of the girls who was injured in the Berkeley balcony collapse.
Rowling, who is world renowned for her Harry Potter book series, sent her love in a tweet to Clodagh Cogley today, who is recovering in hospital after the incident which claimed the lives of six Irish students.
Clodagh’s friends and family launched a Twitter campaign during the week asking Rowling to get in touch, as the 21-year-old listens to the Harry Potter audio books in her Californian hospital bed.
Her brother Darragh led the campaign in the hope that it would lift his sister’s spirits as she undergoes treatment for extensive leg and spine injuries sustained in the balcony collapse.

Clodagh was one of thirteen Irish students attending a 21st birthday party at an apartment in Berkeley on Tuesday, who suffered a 40 foot fall when the balcony of the apartment collapsed at around 1am.
Seven – including Clodagh – were injured, while Olivia Burke, Ashley Donohoe, Lorcán Miller, Niccolai Schuster, Eoghan Culligan and Eimear Walsh lost their lives.
