Injured Volunteer Firefighter Needs Your Help

A man who often rushes to the aid of others is now in need of your help.

21-year-old Colby Gilbert is a volunteer firefighter in Paducah and was recently injured in a serious rollover accident, that involved a semi.

He's now hospitalized in Lubbock and although he's made some big strides and is now breathing on his own, he still has a long recovery ahead.

That's why his family and friends are rallying around him, especially those from neighboring volunteer departments.

"The firefighters in general are a brotherhood and when one of our brothers is injured we all come together. It's a slow process, on getting everything back to where it needs to be, but in the meantime with god's help and a lot of prayers, the communities and friend's it will definitely get there," Gilbert's friend Caleb Nichols said.

To help Gilbert's family in this great time of need there is a go fund me account set up for them.
