Update on condition of driver re:Copper Cove vehicle accident

The following is an update on the condition of  47 year old Bob Fergus submitted by a family member.

"He is very very lucky to be alive and actually the medical staff are impressed with his condition. He does have a left leg broken in 5 places, right leg broken in 2 places, broken hip, broken left arm and 2 broken wrists he also has a punctured lung. He does not have any damage to internal organs (besides the lung) which is great news. He is stable but does have several surgeries ahead of him. Today at 11 he will have repairs to his arms and other leg. Then Friday he will have his wounds closed - they are worried about infection. He is kept sedated and intabated because his wounds are very severe and they want his body to heal. They did say he could be there for many weeks if not months and then he will have to go to a rehab facility. We can't begin to express our thanks to all the people involved with his rescue. The men and boys out there helped save him."
