On Wednesday, June 22, Tyler was involved in an incident at his residence. He was utilizing a boom to cut a tree down. As he was raising the boom, his head came in contact with a utility line. He suffered a severe electrical injury. Tyler was transported to Avera by ambulance. His injuries required him to be sedated and intubated. After a short ER stay, he was flown to Saint Elizabeth hospital in Lincoln, NE. The biggest concerns are keeping a good airway and addressing the many third degree burns. He is receiving continuous monitoring and will have one of two surgeries on Thursday morning for skin grafting. He is going to have a long recovery ahead of him. All the positive thoughts and prayers are appreciated.
We have had lots of people asking if they can send donations. We are not going to set up a GoFundMe account due to the fees. Alexis and Melisa both have Venmo accounts in their names.
