Student injured tubing over holiday weekend

Student injured tubing over holiday weekend

Junior Abraham Munerlyn was severely injured while tubing this past Memorial Day weekend, lacerating his face and throat and fracturing his jaw, among other injuries. He has undergone multiple procedures already.

With an unknown amount of time he will have to stay in the hospital and with no insurance, Abe’s family has set up an online fundraiser which has already received over $2500 in donations to relieve the financial burden. They are already halfway towards their goal of $5000 with 21 days left in the fundraiser.

According to the fundraising page, Aid Abe: “His jaw is wired shut. His carotid artery is injured internally, but should heal within a couple weeks. We are hoping he can avoid a skin graft.”

Despite his injuries, Abe is said to be in high spirits, and his friends and family are hopeful he will recover with time.

Senior Milo Ortiz was with Munnerlyn when the accident occurred. Though he realizes Abe’s  financial need, he voices the greater wishes of the Munnerlyn family.

“More important, they’re asking for prayers,” he said.
