a man' personal hell has some light

Everyone knew about a Trail resident that got ran over by a vehicle back in May. He had successful surgery to his left hip and now has a metal plate bolted on his hip to keep the ball socket in place and had a broken leg. Unlike Carol Enns, this person did not have aid by the community and all he got is a few people behind him for moral support.
