I got a horrible phone call at work from Trevor today who informed me that my dad had called him at work with some bad news. Some may have seen on the news about the bad accident involving the rig carrying three cement slabs in Langford but it was my dad's co-worker. Currently he is in ICU in Victoria General and is heavily sedated. The doctors have also drastically lowered his body temperature to try and reduce any swelling on the brain as they fear brain damage. His legs were both apparently crushed as well but the hopes for that recovery are good.
Sometime early today, the driver had to slam on his brakes (for a yet unknown reason) and his load of cement broke loose and shifted sending the tonnes of cargo smashing into the cab of the tractor.
If you have a moment please offer up a prayer for Richard's life, that God would use his hand of healing and have mercy and save him. I have heard that if he makes it until tomorrow his chances of survival are good. Thanks.
