After initial admittance to the hostpital Rick has since had a chest tube placed and is now on a ventillator.
Rick and Julie have been married for twenty seven years and have two beautful children. Allycia is twenty six and Kyle is twenty two.
Rick has been a union concrete foreman for 20 plus years who has a long hard recovery ahead of him. any donations received will go to help pay for Rick's medical costs.
