A message from Josear:
"Josear has been transported to a trauma hospital in San Diego. It is a miracle that I am here and we are very grateful, but last night we discovered that Josear has many more fractures / fractures than we previously thought, many of them in very crucial areas.
Jose will have skin graphics for burns, found multiple fractures in the lower part of your skull, upper part of the spine and fractures in the back. They also discovered that his hip is broken and will require surgery, as well as a fractured jaw that will require doctors to close it after the operation. He has undergone femur, shin and arm surgery and they are working to place his collarbone and shoulder in place. Josear will have to undergo many surgeries in the next few days and stay in the ICU for a while. Again, you have no idea how much all your kindness means to Josear and the Carrasco family and friends.
While he may not understand how the person who hit him and left him there could be so ruthless, for that evil person, there have been hundreds of incredible people who helped us in any way possible. The amount of love we have received from everyone is overwhelming and truly amazing. Unfortunately, Josear cannot see any visitors at this time other than the immediate family, but we will continue to update when I can see the visitors."
