On October 3, 2019 at approximately 7:00pm, La Familia Coreas received devastating news. Alexander Coreas was going about his daily routine in taking his three German Shepards: Sophie, Honey, and Hazel (also known as “the girls”) for their walk. An unexpected storm took over in an instant while Alexander and the girls were at the Meyer Park, Dog Park. Alexander is a regular in that he is well known in the community for his caring, loving, and compassion relationship he has with his dogs. When Alexander noticed the intensity of the lightning he immediately took charge of the girls and made a run for it. Upon running to get to his truck safely with the girls he was struck by lightning. His clothes caught on fire from the lightning strike, his shoes were knocked off, and he fell forward to the ground. The girls were in distress causing them to run away in fear.
Bill Wilson, a vet technician from Stuebner Airline Veterinary Hospital found him without a heartbeat. At this time he was found dead & immediately Mr. Wilson started CPR. Corey Hart also helped. Mr. Hart and Mr. Wilson took turns during chest compressions. Christy Mittler also helped.
Alexander was taken to Memorial Hermann via life flight. He sustained very serious injuries but by the grace of God he is alive. It is a miracle and a blessing that he is alive. Alexander is currently suffering from fractured ribs, fractured temporal bone (behind his right ear), swollen eye, bruising, and many muscle ruptures due to the lightening striking him.
On behalf of Alexander and his family, we want to extend the love, prayers, and support in return. We would like to take this moment in thanking Bill Wilson, Corey Hart, Christy Mittler, the good samaritans, the community, the first responders, life flight, the police department, friends, and family for helping him out. If it was not for you all, he would not be where he is. Had it not been for each and every one of you there would be no telling where Alexander’s life would be.
Alexander is a person a lot of people like to be around. His energy radiates and can make you feel happy. He is very helpful and charismatic.
La Familia Coreas asks during these next few days you keep Alexander who is a son, a brother, an uncle, and a boyfriend in your prayers. If you are able to, we ask that if you could contribute in whatever amount best suits you. These funds will directly help Alexander cover the incoming medical expenses. With a simple share, prayer, or thought is more than suffice. We are so grateful in how the community has already come together.
May God continue to bless you all. Once again, thank you.
