“He had some, a bit of head injuries as well. So, right now they have him in an induced coma and he is supposed to do another surgery tomorrow. The army here has provided me with some assistance. They have assigned a military personal here from BATSUB who has been facilitated the entire process with travel for myself to go. They have been really reassuring and just supportive here. The nurse from the hospital has reassured me that it is not life threatening. It is just the whole being helpless right now and just hoping for the best.”

 

Garcia says her son is a fighter and believes he will make a speedy recovery.
