“They’re just basically considering that he’s brain dead. There’s no signal going to his body whatsoever,” said Ashley Mulens, whose husband is fighting for his life at Jackson Memorial Hospital. “I have hope and faith in God that he’s going to wake up. I know it’s going to take a little bit of time.”
For the past few days, the family of Christopher Monzon, 26, has been by his side around the clock.
His wife said her three kids are devastated and she’s been shielding them from seeing him like this.
“My kids are constantly asking about him. Even my 3 year old calls me and asks me, ‘Where’s my Chris?'” said Mulens.READ MORE: Overnight Fire in Fort Lauderdale High Rise Leaves One Dead, Another Hospitalized
According to an incident report, Monzon was riding his motorcycle eastbound on the Palmetto, west of 47th Avenue, at around 7:45 p.m. Friday. His family said that’s where he was struck when two vehicles collided.
“He was just driving to get off the exit and the cars hit him from behind and he flew off the bike, causing him to break his helmet in half,” said Mulens.
His family is asking for the public’s help in finding the person responsible and, at the same time, they’re urging that person to come forward.
“I hope that this person just comes clean and says, ‘I was there. This is what happened.’ And just tell me so I can find my peace in my heart,” said Mulens.MORE NEWS: NFL Week 13 AFC East Preview: CBS Boston's Levan Reid Calls AFC East Title Fight A Battle Of 'Big Brother Vs Little Brother'
