San Francisco police sergeant remains in critical condition after tree fell on car
SAN FRANCISCO - A San Francisco police sergeant who was struck by a falling tree during Tuesday's storm remains in critical condition, officials said Sunday.
Sgt. Kevin Brugaletta had to be extricated from his car and rushed to the ICU with life-threatening injuries.
Brugaletta and his wife Brittany are expecting their second baby girl in a few weeks, according to a Gofundme created for him and his family.
"Brittany and Kevin have a long road ahead of them, and they appreciate all the love, support, and prayers," said Michaela Woods, organizer of the GoFundme. "Please keep them coming."
The post said the familly will be getting used to the "new normal" as they welcome a new baby while caring for Brugaletta in his recovery.
"The Brugaletta family is overwhelmed by the support, generosity, and love they have received since the incident." said San Francisco Police Officers Association President Tracy McCray. "They are eternally grateful for the support during these difficult times."
An earlier tweet from the police had indicated he was in stable condition, but it was confirmed Sunday he is still in critical condition.
