Prayers needed please

just got a call. My cousin Chris skydives alot. today he was doing his thing when a huge gust of wind caught his chute and he ended up slamming into the ground at roughly 50mph, pretty much face first. hes alive, but both legs are broken and has many fractures in his face. he will be in the hospital for quite some time and the surgery process begins tomorrow. man this sucks.

that was the news i was told. at first my uncle (his dad) was told that his chute didnt open at all. which of course freaked everyone out even more at first, but there was a miscommunication, and we were given the right info. ill be honest, when i found out what really happened, i was actually relieved. its still a terrible thing to happen, but hes alive and as far as we know theres no brain trauma.

Us Mexicans are big believers... Will put in some good words with the big J.

No brain damage is pretty important, the rest should hopefully heal with time and rest.

Hope your cousin recovers well, bro.
