On Sunday, July 21st Daniel was driving near Koreatown and was involved in an accident that rendered him unconscious with life-threatening injuries. He was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital where he underwent the first of multiple surgeries. Trauma surgeons successfully stopped his internal bleeding in two emergency surgeries that lasted until late Sunday night. The accident split his pelvis and shattered his left upper arm, along with deep lacerations on his pelvis from the split. He has had 4 additional surgeries to fix his pelvis and arm, but follow up MRIs have found more fractures in his legs that will require additional time to heal. Right now, his doctors are estimating that he will need to remain in the hospital for 4–6 weeks, followed by physical rehabilitation for his pelvis and arm. Daniel is a beacon in many lives. From his community service with the Star Wars 501st Legion, his love for photography or his indomitable spirit. He never shies away from helping others whenever he can, and now he needs our help.
