On Thursday July 5th, Mundo and Lisa were injured in a motorcycle accident on Montague and Kendall Road. They were both transferred to Rockford Memorial/ Mercy Health Hospital. Both were conscious at the time of the scene. Lisa suffered major road rash, a broken left wrist, and a broken right foot. As of now, none of these injuries need surgery and she is still in the hospital recovering. She is accepting visitors throughout the day.
Mundo was transported to the Emergency Room with severe injuries to his right leg and chest. On the scene, Mundo was diagnosing his injuries to the first responders (surprise, surprise!). At the scene, he was sedated by medical personnel, intubated, given fluids, and was transported to the hospital. Once admitted and assessed, Mundo was taken back to surgery to stabilize his leg and evaluate all his injuries. Currently, he is in the ICU and is sedated on the ventilator with a chest tube to keep allowing his body to heal. Tentatively, he is scheduled for another surgery early this week. At this time, the nursing staff is recommending to the family that he have no visitors. Please be respectful of the family's wishes during this hard time.
The family would like to thank Win-Ber-Sew and Byron Fire departments, Winnebago County Sherriff's department, REACT, MD-1, and all bystanders who assisted. The family would also like to thank the hospital staff and Chaplins who are providing care and guidance.
