John and Laura (Klemann) Hunt Benefit
Semi vs. Pickup and a brand new outlook on life...
On March 2, 2010 the day started out early in the ER in Eagle Butte with John and Laura's daughter Jessa. Her 2nd bout of pnemonia this year and her Daddy's history of respiratory issues landed her in an ambulance ride with Mommy to the ER in Pierre to be admitted. John's job - of course - check on son Collin at school, coordinate taking care of him, and rounding up needed items at the ranch for an extended stay in Pierre. A passionate, dedicated father trying to make it to Pierre...
John was trapped in his pickup for an hour after a collision with a semi at 55 mph. The paramedic on scene immediately called for the flight team and rescuers worked to get him out. John was airlifted to Sioux Falls and then from there transported to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. John has had numerous surgeries on his arm, shoulder, elbow, hip and jaw. After 30 days at Rochester, John was able to make it back to Eagle Butte to recover. John has many hours and days of recovery ahead of him, including additional surgeries to repair the damage to his arm, shoulder and elbow.
Please help support John and his family on his road to recovery.
