I just received this in an email from Daniel's father.
Dan was injured on Saturday the 29th, "hit buy a truck" to be exact. He was flown by helicopter to a trauma center in Halifax and is recovering from surgery performed late Saturday night. His injuries were rather severe but he came through surgury well and is in good spirits today. He is however very sore and will be for a while.
He was helping a friend onto a local transit bus on the main road near his home in Greenwood and was struck by a pick-up doing 80 km/hr (50 mph) while he tried to cross the highway. He was thrown 30 metres and suffered a broken femur, broken wrist, bruised lung, lacerated liver and a minor concusion. He is still feeling the effects of his head injury in, a bit of disorientation and short term memory loss, but this is dissipating slowly. Not too sure at this point about length of time for recovery or rehab and we don't know exactly how long his hospital stay will be. He is presently in the surgery intermed ICU and will be moved when his condition improves.
As soon as I get over my initial shock, I'll give him a call.
