Bruce is alert and talking but sustained some severe injuries.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

prayers to all involved, and their family. The Nashville Cats crew was on our lake a couple weeks ago for our run and from all indications were curteous, professional, and safe. I never had the pleasure of meetng the other crew, but I am confident they were also as much an asset to the boating community. ..........

Just a quick post to keep everyone up to date. I just left the hospital where Bruce is in ICU. He just got out of surgery to put a tube in each lung to drain them and help them inflate. Both lungs collapsed, probably due to the numerous broken ribs puncturing them. His is able to breathe on his own at this point with the help of oxygen. Hopefully they will not have to put him on a vent. His head and face are beat up pretty bad. He suffered numerous bad cuts,lacerations, and broken bones. We are still waiting for the results of the cat scan of his head, but at this point it looks pretty good. He was heavily sedated but was able to talk to me and ask and answer questions. He is very concerned about the well being of everyone involved. He does not really know what happened. He is going to need a lot of time and even more support to recover. Please pray for a complete and speedy recovery from both the accident and for the loss of his wife, friends and fellow boaters. Bruce is the only surviver and has got a very long road to recovery.
I was not at the scene but the general concensus is that something failed on Flash Gordons boat, causing it to make a sharp left turn, directly into the path of the oncoming boat of Bruce and Myra Gibson(The Nashville Catz).It appears that it was an unavoidable and tragic ACCIDENT. Once again, I was not at the scene.
We will stay here as long as it takes. If anyone needs us, we can be reached at 504-416-3607 or [email protected]. Please only call if nessesary. Thank you all for your support and prayers, they will need every bit of it. Eddie

What a sad day, I never met Bruce but I would often see him lurking here, we shared a few PM's and he always signed them Bruce and Myra. I loved that boat and the fact that they did so many Poker Runs together. I pray for Bruce's recovery but I have a feeling his body will heal quicker than his heart.

RIP and God Bless
