never knowing if he'll be returning home that night."

Not all superheroes

wear capes.

has given his or her life to

something bigger than oneself."

Corporal Christopher Rich – New Shoreham Police Department

On 9/18/2018 Corporal Christopher Rich of the New Shoreham Police Department was dispatched to a male acting crazy. The suspect was screaming uncontrollably and incoherently. Corporal Rich and another officer followed the subject into a room, where he puts his roommate in a headlock. Police were able to separate the two but the subject became extremely agitated and a physical confrontation occurred. The subject was soaked in sweat and during the fight Corporal Rich’s hand slipped off him and into a frameless mirror. Corporal Rich noticed blood pouring out of deep cuts from his hand and with numbness, his right arm and hand became useless. Corporal Rich continued to fight despite this catastrophic injury. The subject was eventually placed in handcuffs and he was able to wrap his hand and apply a tourniquet to stop the profuse bleeding.

Corporal Rich suffered a life changing and likely career ending injury. He has had surgery and physical therapy to help regain function in his hand and more surgeries are planned. He has suffered major setbacks in his personal life and his financial stability is in jeopardy.

Corporal Rich is in need of our moral, spiritual and financial support. Any donation, large or small, would be greatly appreciated.
