Green suffered multiple injuries, including two broken arms and a broken pelvis. He is currently in an induced coma, according to his friend Colin Carrier who organized the GoFundMe page.

“He’s got a long road of healing in front of him,” said Carrier.

“He and his son have just moved into a new place and he was working two jobs to keep The two of them comfortable. He’s going to be recuperating for quite a while and he’s going to need everyone’s help. Any donation would be greatly appreciated to help cover costs while Gunzy overcomes this horrible situation.”
