Fire crews host fundraiser for chief's son who was burned in accident
POINTE COUPEE - Fire crews are asking the community for help after their chief's 2-year-old son was involved in an accident, leaving burns on his neck and upper body.
According to a GoFundMe created by the members of Pointe Coupee Fire District 2, the accident happened Sunday, Jan. 22 while visiting family.
Two-year-old Aaron Jr., son of Pointe Coupee Fire Chief Aaron Edwards, was airlifted to the burn unit of a children's hospital and admitted into the ICU.
Wednesday, Chief Edwards shared the following update on Aaron Jr.'s condition:
He still try to be an active baby, but unfortunately the pain is hitting him hard on today. We are preparing for a trip back to Lafayette as we speak. The wrap will be removed at 7 a.m. tomorrow morning & he will have his first cleaning & possible skin graft. We are not looking forward to that. He doesn’t understand what’s going or why he is hurting at times. He developed a fever and some shivering but thank God we were able to break it. Thanks to everyone again for so much love and support. Please keep the prayers coming.
