Wilson Ortega-Construction Accident

On May 4, my nephew Wilson Ortega was seriously injured in a tragic construction accident. Wilson moved to the United States from the Dominican Republic three years ago with his wife. He is a loving family man who spent most of his time at work and the gym. He dreamed of someday building a house for his mother in Santo Domingo.
Wilson was trapped under the debris of a mezzanine collapse for hours while firefighters and medical staff fought to extract him. When he said he couldn’t take the pain anymore a firefighter talked him through it, calming him down as they worked to rescue him. He whispered in his ear and told him to stay calm and that everything will be OK. It was like an angel that came from heaven.
Wilson was rushed to the hospital but sadly his legs were damaged beyond repair and needed to be amputated in order to save his life. He will be transferred to a rehabilitation facility where he will be fitted with prosthetics and will have to learn how to walk again.
Wilson’s employer NorthStar Contracting Group is tirelessly working to assist his recovery and to reunite him with his young son currently living in the Dominican Republic. He and his family will need all of our continued support as he recovers from his life changing injuries.
We are organizing this GoFundMe fundraiser to help alleviate any financial burdens on his family as he recovers from his injuries. Please consider helping Wilson as he fights to piece his life back together.

El 4 de Mayo, mi sobrino Wilson Ortega resultó gravemente herido en un trágico accidente de construcción. Wilson se mudó a los Estados Unidos desde la República Dominicana hace tres años con su esposa. Es un amoroso hombre de familia que pasa la mayor parte de su tiempo en el trabajo y en el gimnasio. Soñaba con construir algún día una casa para su madre en Santo Domingo.
Wilson quedó atrapado bajo los escombros del derrumbe de un entrepiso durante horas mientras los bomberos y el personal médico luchaban para sacarlo. Cuando dijo que no podía soportar más el dolor, un bombero lo habló y lo calmó mientras trabajaban para rescatarlo. Le susurró al oído y le dijo que mantuviera la calma y que todo estaría bien. Era como un ángel que vino del cielo.
Wilson fue trasladado de urgencia al hospital, pero lamentablemente sus piernas sufrieron daños irreparables y fue necesario amputarlas para salvar su vida. Será trasladado a un centro de rehabilitación donde se le colocarán prótesis y tendrá que aprender a caminar de nuevo.
El empleador de Wilson, NorthStar Contracting Group, está trabajando incansablemente para ayudarlo a recuperarse y reunirlo con su hijo pequeño que actualmente vive en la República Dominicana. Él y su familia necesitarán todo nuestro apoyo continuo mientras se recupera de las lesiones que cambiaron su vida.
Estamos organizando esta recaudación de fondos de GoFundMe para ayudar a aliviar las cargas financieras de su familia mientras se recupera de sus heridas. Considere ayudar a Wilson mientras lucha por reconstruir su vida.
