Uber driver Has heart attack after being attacked

On the evening of September 29th while Joseph McVey was driving for Uber, his passenger violently  attacked him with a knife. Joe was lucky to escape this attack but immediately after was rushed to the hospital where Joe coded for 11min and suffered a massive heart attack. Here we are 6 days later and Joe is still fighting for his life on a vent. Family is by his side everyday waiting for him to wake up. 

Unfortunately this process has been made even harder. We had to track down his Uber car, search for a number to even contact Uber, then waited 5 days for them to even contact us. All while still being charged for the car that was impounded by police. We still have only received one call and no other contact info for Uber to this day.

Joes family is reaching out for help during this time as Joe has a long road ahead of him once he does wake up. As we have faith he will. Joe was the provider for his family. We’re asking for help wherever anyone can. Whether it be financial, helping the family with rides as they now don’t have a car, or even bringing the family dinner. There’s 2 little girls still needing care of at home, waiting for their Daddy to get home.

At this time Joe cannot have visitors at the hospital but we will inform everyone when that can happen.

Thank you you for your support to the McVey family.

Keep them hem in your prayers
