Monday morning Ron was working on pulling down a scaffold at the fields and lost his balance, and he fell appoximatly 12ft landing directly onto the top of his head. He was taken to the hospital where we were told that he had broken three of the vertebrae in his neck, and fractured two in his back. It was described to us as, he dove into a swimming pool without any water.
The doctor said that usually this type of an injury is a life changing one, he said that most people actually do not live through the fall and those that do, very few ever regain the use of their limbs. Throughout this entire process Ron has never lost consciousness or ever lost the use of his arms and legs. He will have to take some time off from the paintball field and he will have to wear a brace that goes around his chest and up to his neck to give him full support. He will wear the brace 3 to 4 months and when he does return to the field his movements and work ability will be limited for a time.
We would like to thank all the members of the Classic Paintball family that have been so supportive by continuing to call and come by the hospital to show their concerns. He was finally able to come home Thursday evening and the process of getting everyone back into the normal routine has begun. All of the normal day to day operations such as weekly private evens and weekend walk-in/open play will continue UN-interrupted. The business hours and procedures will not change!!!
The best way to show Ron and Classic your support is to come out to the fields to play paintball and have fun!!!
