Chris Godfrey, the Comox Valley slo-pitch player critically injuring during a game in Courtenay Saturday, remains in hospital in Victoria.
In an update posted to the family’s Go Fund Me Page, organizer Nicole Lebrun explained that Godfrey is in a private room with a window.
“Amanda (Chris’s wife) remains at his side where she plays videos to him so he can hear all of the love and support that has been flowing his way,” she wrote.
Godfrey, 32, was rushed to hospital in Comox, then Victoria after a ball thrown from the infield hit Godfrey in the back of the head.
“It’s one in a billion thing. Nobody has ever seen anything like that happen before and for the rest of my life I’ll probably never see anything like that happen again. It’s tragic,” said Scott Parsons, coach of the Ballbusters, the host team for the weekend’s tournament prior to a vigil Monday evening.
Lebrun added the family of Godfrey would like to thank Jeneece Place for bending the rules and welcoming his family into the home away from home and allowing thefamily a comfortable place to rest.
Jeneece Place is a temporary home in Victoria where families can stay while their children are receiving medical care.
More than $26,000 has been raised in four days for the family, through the crowdfunding page.
