Chris Green nearly died at a Wednesday night demonstration in Portsmouth, when a Confederate soldier statue pulled down by protesters landed on him, according to NBC News.
The victim’s wife of 13 years, Tonieh Brisbane-Green, said her husband flat-lined twice en route to the hospital after 9 p.m. Wednesday. Though she said she wasn’t at the demonstration, Brisbane-Green said her husband had his back to the falling statue and never saw it coming.
Brisbane-Green said doctor’s had to put her 45-year-old husband, a father of two, into a medically induced coma to perform emergency surgery. According to Brisbane-Green, doctors told her that Green, who was treated for a broken neck and a head injury, is lucky he wasn’t killed.
The Greens have not decided whether or not they will pursue legal remedy from the city.
