-The Cox Family
My dad, Brian Cox, was severely beaten by fellow co-workers while he was on a business training trip in GA. We are still searching for answers and have the police and detectives involved. After my dad was beaten to a pulp, he was then drug to his room and left in a fetal position on the bed so he would not choke on his own vomit. He apparently woke up in pain and realized his clothes and shoes were still on. As he bent over to untie his shoes his legs buckled and he fell off the bed. He screamed and whistled for help for 2 hours on the floor with his left arm trapped under him and paralyzed legs...finally a co-worker heard him and called the for help. The EMS showed up and they were told my dad was very intoxicated and had vomited all over himself leaving out the assault & battery part...what great co-workers/friends, right?!?! But in all actuality he had be beaten, had a stroke, and paralysis had set in. The EMS did not check any vitals and picked him up and tossed him on the bed and told him to sleep it off. My dad told them over and over he was tingling all over and could not feel his legs. A few hours later my dad was found by a hotel staff member and he was begging to go the hospital bc he was in so much pain. The EMS came and checked his vitals. His blood pressure was in the 50s and they told him that if he would have sat there any longer he may have died. These cruel and mean people beat the crap out of my father and left him to die! The company he works for has not offered any assistance or called to check on my father. He had surgery because he has crushed vertebrae and a severed spinal cord. They put titianium plates and rods in his neck and he has to go through extensive rehabilitation. He was also hit so hard in his kidneys that he is still going through dialysis. His kidneys are healing, but it's taking a lot of time and recovery. I'm guessing steel toe boots...so sad. He is paralyzed from the waste down and can only move his right arm a little. He suffered some brain damage, but we aren't sure how severe it is yet. He is completely traumatized and will have to undergo a lot of counseling. He wakes up from awful, scary nightmares, has uncontrollable anxiety, and fears for the life of his family bc he thinks these awful men are going to come back to finish him and his family off. He is suffering from a baaaad case of PTSD. My dad will never be able to walk, run, or play with his grandchildren the way he use to and it's breaking his heart! The cowards who did this to him need to fess up, because we are not stopping until we get answers and justice.
Poppa we love you!!! You are the greatest Poppa anyone could ask for!!!
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."
Thank you to all of our family and friends for your generous donations, prayers, and support. My dad is so lucky to know so many caring people. He may not be rich with money, but he sure is rich with great family & friends!!!! Y'all are truly awesome!
