Update 12/17/09 10:15 AM: Chris Henry has passed away at 6:36 AM.
I was saddened to read this morning that Chris Henry has been put on life support after a tragic accident.
Henry was found in the road about eight miles north of downtown Charlotte "apparently suffering life-threatening injuries," according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police. Henry was transported to Carolinas Medical Center, the local trauma unit, but spokesman Scott White said he was not listed in hospital records and had no other information.
Apparently while on injured reserve, Chris and his fiance were staying at the fiance's mothers house and a fight ensued between Chris and the fiance where she proceeded to get in the truck and speed off but not before Chris was able to jump in the back of the pick up.
At some point, Chris was thrown from the back of the pick up. His status was described as "dire" and has life threating injuries. The woman who called in a medic was noted as the fiance's mother but would not give a name.
This is a truly sad story and something that could have been prevented by not acting on impulse. While myself is nowhere near a position to judge what happened, you can't help but speculate on the situation.
Be that as it may, myself and on behalf of Yarbarker, I would like to say you are in my thoughts and prayers and hope the news reports are gross over exaggerations of the situation and you find yourself a speedy recovery.
