Sgt. Patricia Ravine's recovery
$16,070 of $10k goal
On Wednesday night, August 03, 2016 at around 11:45 PM, Davie Police Sergeant Patricia Ravine was travelling on Intersate 75 when she observed a vehicle roll over. She quickly stopped her marked patrol vehicle with all of her emergency lights on and began to check for injuries. She was able to safely get the driver of the rolled over vehicle onto the shoulder where one would think it would be safer than in the roadway. Another vehicle that was traveling southbound failed to slow down for the emergency lights until it was too late. The driver of that vehicle swerved onto the shoulder at highway speed and struck Sergeant Ravine causing her to go flying in the air. She was quickly airlifted by helicopter to the Broward Health Medical Center Trauma Unit in critical condition with head trauma and other injuries.
After a brief stay in the Intensive Care Unit she was downgraded to stable condition. Since then, she has been transfered to a rehabilitation center where she will spend some time in therapy recovering before going home. She has a long road ahead of her and it won't easy. Her husband Shawn, who is also a police officer, will be taking a leave of absence to care for Patty and their four children. With both of them being out of work it will cause a financial strain and they need help now more than ever.
The money raised will go towards preparing their house for the necessities that she will need due to her mobility restrictions and other various needs to facilitate a speedy and healthy recovery.
Police officers go out everyday helping others, and now one is in need of help herself. Sergeant Patty Ravine stopped that night to help someone else out when she was struck. Lets see if we can help her out!
