After departing from a family gathering, Jairo got on the road and merged off the wrong exit. Within a split second he realized it was not only the wrong one but that he wouldn't have enough time to completely make the turn. As he braked, his back tire locked and sent him straight into the concrete barrier thus crushing his foot between motorcycle and wall. With the momentum of everything he was launched over the wall downward into a dark embankement, where fortunately the ice plants broke his fall.
At that point his adrenaline and strong will to live triggered him to drag himself up the side of the road to look for help. Noticing his injured foot and the gravity of his situation he rested his head and said a prayer.
Remarkably, within a moments notice, a compassionate couple flashed a light down to where Jairo laid and proceeded to help him by getting him up and calling for help. Without the good graces of these amazing individuals my brother would not be here today!
For those who know and love Jairo we value that he's a strong, self driven and hard working individual. So when we became aware of this tragic mishap, it was not only a shock but extremly heart breaking. Eventhough he's now facing this life changing situation with a positive attitude, we recognize that this healing process will take a tremendous toll and effort not only on himself but his fiancé and new soon to be born, baby boy Isaiah.
We thank God his life was spared, but the seriousness of his injuries were so severe that his foot could not be saved. The treatments he will now be recieving are costly not including the medical expenses and prosthesis. For that reason we are reaching out to family, friends and those whos hearts desire to help so that we can alleviate the weight of this tremendous blow. Any bit will help and we thank you in advance for your generosity!
We are profoundly grateful to God and want to personally thank everyone who immediately came to his aid, including those who were able to come to show him love and encouragement ! Thank you so much for helping Jairo and his growing family, we know your support will go a long way!
With great appreciation,
The Dueñas Family
