Mike Gilbert

Posted by joelbyer on March 27, 2007

In a previous post, I mentioned about going to a Youth Revival last weekend at Rock Lake, MI. While there I saw Mike Gilbert and talked to him as I have on other occasions. Today I heard that he was in a serious accident this last Sunday. Here’s an excerpt…

Warning! It’s a little gruesome, but he needs our prayers.

On Sunday morning March 25th around 6:30 a.m.
Mike was in an auto accident involving a tractor that had a fertilizer
spreader with no tail light. He didn’t see the tractor because it was
not light out yet. He received several injuries including two severe
cuts inside his mouth, a broken jaw, several teeth were broken off,
thirteen broken ribs, traumatized heart and lungs, two broken knees,
right leg broken in four places, right ankle was crushed, severed
tendons and nerves and a torn artery in the right leg,his tongue was
almost completely severed, many many bruises, and a chin laceration.
