Road to recovery for Jon Rygiel

The explosion happened just after 2 p.m. Thursday afternoon at Greener Acres Transmission in Cadott. Jon was trying to cut open a metal drum when it exploded.

Jon was airlifted to Marshfield Hospital where he was put into surgery to remove a portion of his skull in order to try and relieve some of the pressure and the swelling. After the surgery Jon will be placed into a coma to allow the brain and himself to heal.

The family could use all prayers in hopes that Jon makes a quick and full recovery. Any donation is greatly appreciated. The money will be used for any bills not covered by insurance and miscellaneous expenses that his family will come upon during this long road to a hopeful recovery.
