From Trent’s page.
“Nikk update- He is breathing on his own without the ventilator but talking is very uncomfortable. Ortho says his legs have good blood supply and nerves are intact.That is wonderfull news.3 surgeries to come, right wrist, left leg then right leg.”

I might be wrong, but I think some of that damage was due to the "Jaws of Life" being used to get him out.


Not really much of a comparable situation, but I knew a guy who flipped over on landing (with a Thorp T-18). He and a passenger were OK, but they couldn't get out (sliding canopy), and as soon as the rescue people got there they immediately attacked the airplane with "The Jaws", despite the pilot yelling and pleading with them to just get a couple of people to lift the tail up so they could get out. They completely destroyed the airplane, which had relatively minor damage before the "rescue". I'm sure this was probably a much different situation, and he was lucky to be rescued as quickly and the way that he was. Having been saved once myself, I'm very appreciative of the job that firemen, emt's, emergency rooms, police etc. do.

I've seen this before. The rescue crews need to get the fuel (wings) cut off and away from the cabin to do their work.

The "jaws" do this efficiently and quickly.


Thoughts and prayers to Nikk, his family and friends. He has a long road ahead...

Thank you Jesus that you are going to be alright, Nikk!
We love your guys and girl's attitude to enjoying life and doing so with loads of gratitude!
I will continue to pray for your complete recovery and for you all to not be set back in your flying.
You guys are a testimony as to how one should enjoy the gifts that God has given us.
You are all making a difference!
Be strong and keep it up!

Truely lots of prayers for a complete recovery

Would it be appropriate for us as a Kitfox family to set up
some way to make donations to his family???

This is certainly a serious incident and I would like to help them out
but not sure where to send help to

Prayerfully
Rodney

For more updates you can look up Big Tire Pilots- STOL Pilots-Backcountry Pilots- Moutain Pilots public group on Facebook. Kevin Quinn is the Admin.
Just saw a photo from Nikk’s dad showing Nikk in the hospital giving a thumbs up. Wonderful to see his spirit is good. His legs are wrapped pretty good and right arm.

Rodney- if there becomes a financial assistance fund it will likely show up soon. If I see it announced on Kevin’s Facebook page I’ll let you know.
