Family seeks help for teen accident victim needing surgery after amputation

Family seeks help for teen accident victim needing surgery after amputation

By now you might have seen the grisly image of a young man lying facedown on the ground with his tibia and fibula (the two long bones in the lower leg) snapped in two.
His name is Bryshawn Walters and the image being circulated was the result of a motorcycle accident he was involved in at East End on April 18.

Doctors weren’t able to save the leg and at 16 years old, Bryshawn has become an amputee.

But according to his brother Bryan, the youngster has other medical complications from the accident and he now needs the public’s help.

“He (Bryshawn) lost [his] right leg and his abdomen was ruptured and he has head trauma he needs medical assistance as soon as possible. Please help my brother. Anything will be greatly appreciated,” Bryan stated.

Bryan has set up a GoFundMe account for his brother who is to undergo surgery in the United States.

The family is trying to raise $50,000 through GoFundMe. And while 46 persons had donated up to publication time, there is ways left to go before they reach their target.

Just a little more than $2,700 has been raised so far.
