Default Fellow racer needs help.

I have a friend that lost his leg tonight while we were working on a car. The nitrous bottle exploded amputating his left leg. He was allready out of work due to an injury. I would do the work on the car while he told me what to do. He has no insurance so I was wanting to set up some type of account and see if I could get some donations. The story can be seen on www.kxxv.com and www.kwtx.com If anyone has any Idea's how to get this started it would be appreciated.
Thanks Chris

that's just horrible.

Freak things happen. When I was 15 yrs old our air compressor exploded...turned it inside out like a bisquit can and blew a hole in the garage. Prayers will be with the guy. I hate hearing crap like this.

Thoughts & Prayers are out to you and your family

I ran an ad letting people know about this accident and that I was going to post the info on how to donate money today but it got deleted. Any one know why they would do that?
