...just got a hospital update on Mark. He is in Baltimore, and is on his way into specialist surgery as we speak. He has several badly broken bones in his arm and shoulder along with some severe artery damage. We pray for his full recovery.

Many thanks to all who put themselves into harms way to save/rescue those in need. Divers, helo, sweep boats, and ambulance workers. Its tough to stand on the pier just watching knowing a good friend is danger. But they couldnt have been in better hands considering the situation. We hope and pray for all that were involved from the Extractor Boat and Tom Cat, a speedy and full recovery. House, you know we are especially praying for you.

I got a call shortly after I posted. Mark is in better shape. He's got more surgery and a lot of healing ahead of him, but he on a good path.

Godspeed in recovery Jim and Mark.

Mark & Jim from the Tom Cat boat are still recovering and have a couple very special men to thank in the recue effort. Those men are from the Extractor boat. Extractor spun out on the opposite corner of the track. These guys were pulled to safety and were already in the rescue boat, soaking wet, then Tom Cat crashed, it was faster to take Exctractor crew direct to the next accident scene rather than drop them off (total elsapsed time 2-3 minutes between accidents) - Mark House weighs 325 lbs dry and was badly injured. With the help of the three men from the Extractor team and the rescue crew they hauled Mark into the rescue boat and then to safety. The situation was bad and these guys were still out of breath from there own incident, but did not hesitate, and most imporatantly the additional man power was needed at that very moment to save a life.

It may be luck that Extractor crew was in the right place at the right time, but it is more likely that good people are always in the right place -

Thank you from Jim & Mark and all of us

Mark and Jim are in two different hospitals in Maryland and are either going to be release today or Sunday,( or will climb out of the windows and leave anyway) - Both Jim & Mark will be slow to recover but the future looks good
