Helping at a Cost (aka Brave)

Wrong Place/Right Time? -- or --Right Place/Wrong Time? 

Depends who you ask.  Our world has become a place where people don’t get involved; but not my son (in-law). 

Adam was physically assaulted in downtown Portland this weekend where he was caught up in a rally that quickly became a riot.  With no thought to his own safety, Adam jumped in to protect another older, innocent bystander that was being beaten with steel pipes. 

Due to Adam’s quick thinking to protect another human life, this caused him to be hit 4-6 times in the head, legs, back with those steel pipes.  As well as being sprayed with pepper spray.  

The Twitter link video shows the attack but not the final injuries.

Adam is now on 48-hour watch for concussion, brain swelling and internal bleeding due to the 4 major lacerations he incurred.  Over 25 stitches/staples!!  At this time, doctors are saying long term diagnosis of the injury is unknown.  

Your help and kind donations will assist in the medical bills that include the ambulance, CAT scan, the stay at OHSU, and follow up medical procedures. 

When you contribute to this fund you are joining the chorus of all of us who are saying: “THANK YOU” for being a brave Samaritan with no thought to the cost of his own safety.
