My Story

Chris was involved in an accident while on duty. He is a police officer for the City of Beaufort. 

He was hit by a car while on duty working an accident that had happened previously that night. 

He was flown to MUSC because he had multiple injuries. His injuries are serious, but we are hopeful for his recovery. 

He is in the surgical trauma intensive care unit at MUSC. He has suffered multiple fractures including broken ribs. He is scheduled for surgery on Thursday. Although he is very alert and in good spirits the next few days will be critical to the speed of his recovery. Because of his rib fractures, breathing takes all of his energy and he is very easily worn out. Because of this we are asking that he have no visitors. 

I will update as often as I can, and do my best to answer any pressing questions. I am also setting up a Caring Bridge site for people to check for updates. If you do not wish to get the updates, please email me back and ask me to take you off of my list. Or you can check my facebook page if you prefer, just let me know. 

I am thankful that I have a place to stay in Charleston - and the Beaufort Police Department is taking very care of us as well as all of our family at Community Bible Church. The children are all safe and taken care of.

Below is the story from our local newspaper.
