On Sunday, July 21, our family was visiting Lucia Falls in Yacolt, WA. My 12 year old son slipped on a rock and was swept away by the river and over a 15 foot falls. Robert tried to grab him and missed and jumped in after him head first and went over the falls head first. My son swam ashore with only a bruised elbow. But my husband has three large gashes on his face with 36 stitches,a concussion and fractured neck.
Paramedics were on the scene within 15 minutes and took him to Peace health trauma unit in Vancouver Washington. He has had an x-ray and MRI and a cat-scan for a closer look at his neck. (waiting results) There was no bleeding on his brain and he has not lost consciousness.
It is an absolute miracle that he did not break his neck more and become paralyzed are black out and lose consciousness on the way down the chute and over the falls. It is completely evident to us that God's guardian Angels brought them both out alive. If you are able we
would appreciate help with the medical costs. This comes on top of our emergency C-section a few months back.
