On Friday May 11 Brian was performing a Sky Diving Demo for the season opening game at the Corn Crib ball park in Bloomington, IL. After jumping from the airplane Brian's parachute did not deploy properly, the reserve parachute also did not deploy right. When both parachutes did deploy they either tangled or interfered with each other and Brian dropped onto a parking lot near the park. He has a head injury and suffered a brain bleed, fractured forehead, nose and eye sockets. Both of his lower legs were broken and the L 5 Vertebrate. As of the time I started this site on his behalf he was in a coma at St Francis Hospital in Critical but stable condition.
