Today’s R2S: Father Refuses To Give Up Search For Son
In what could only be described as every parents worst nightmare, 24 hours had passed and Tony Lethbridge had not heard a word from his son, Samuel who was driving back home from a trip to South Wales. While the police insisted that Samuel had probably just extended his stay and that they should go home and wait for him, Tony had this gut feeling that something worse was going on.
He thought back to a few years earlier when another person had crashed on the road his son was supposed to be driving on. Due to the areas geographical location, his vehicle wasn't discovered for 5 days, and by the time the emergency crews arrived, it was too late.
Tony was not taking any chances, he knew the only way to truly get a good look at the area would be from the air. He took 1000 dollars to the airport and found a helicopter pilot willing to take him up. Within 10 minutes of being airborne, they discovered Samuel's car.
When his father finally reached him, Samuel was discovered in the vehicle with many injuries. Paramedics were called and he was rushed to the hospital where it was discovered he had, a broken leg, arm, a dislocated elbow, and many small fractures throughout his body.
Even with all those injuries, Samuel is expected to make a full recovery.
