ROYAL OAK, MI – Jessica Phillips was working as a nurse at Beaumont Royal Oak when she was told her son was in the trauma room on the floor below.
George, 9-years-old, had been in a sledding accident on Saturday February 6th, 2021. He and his 37-year-old father were visiting relatives in Rochester Hills. The father attached a plastic sled to the back of his 2009 Jeep Wrangler while towing his son in circles around a cul-de-sac. While being towed on the sled attached to the back of his fathers Jeep Wrangler, the son struck the back of a legally parked 2012 Ford Fusion causing his head injury, known as a brain bleed, and broken bones to his body.
George was transported by RHFD to Royal Oak Beaumont Hospital and subsequently life-flighted to Children’s Hospital in Detroit where he remains in critical condition.
The GoFundMe Account has been established to assist the family with medical expenses associated to the future on going care of George.
“This is a critical time and along with prayers, Jessica will need all the help she can get to not worry about anything but her son right now,” wrote Nadina Abdurahmanovic who set up a GoFundMe fundraiser to help support her friend.
