Asking for prayers for Emil Jordan, who suffered serious injuries from this one-vehicle accident on Hwy 9 South just out of Ashland on Friday, July 10 around 4:30 PM. Jordan was entrapped in his vehicle and hydraulic tools were used by emergency personnel to extract him.
Jordan was taken by ambulance to the Clay County Hospital helipad where he was airlifted to Emory Hospital in Ga. Jordan’s injuries included a broken hip, crushed pelvis, and broken femur, and five (5) broken ribs. Jordan also has a blood clot in his lungs, which may take as long as 4 weeks to clear up. At present time, the main focus is getting his oxygen regulated.
Emil’s wife, Debra wishes to thank all of the emergency personnel who helped at the accident scene as well: Clay County Rescue Squad, Ashland Police, Clay County Sheriff’s Office, and Ashland Fire Department and all volunteers.
Mr. Jordan looks to have a long recovery period ahead of him. Debra wishes to thank everyone for their support thus far and asks that everyone keep those prayers coming because they are working!
