Bad wreck in the Glades

Post by MYDIXIEWRECKED »

Need some prayers... I just got a call that two boats ran into each other down in the cypress by the tower. A 19 year old boy got thrown into the prop of the front boat from the rear boat. He was getting airlifted as I was talking to my buddy on the phone. It ain't looking good at this point. :(

Thanks for the post. I'm sure were all praying for a positive outcome. Anxious for more news as it is available.

I am cashing in all my favors to the Lord. I was supposed to go there today for the Jason Goode ride but lost my altenator on the truck. I have friends on the ride and pray they are O.K.
