They arrived around 6:30am in the Neurotrauma ICU. Both were covered head to toe in soot and had to be cleaned to properly acess the degree of damage to their skin. Both had their heads shaved, hands wrapped in gauze, and all kinds of tubes ran into their body. My father is currently in stable condition and he even opened his eyes a few times. Unfortunately Chris suffered much worse damage to his lungs and the stress to his body caused a heart attack and could not be saved.
The Laing family needs to raise money for medical and funeral costs. Mike lost all of his belongings in the fire and any assistance to help him back on his feet would be greatly appreciated.
We thank you in advance for your generosity. We will keep you posted on any further updates.
