Gunn City, Mo.
My wife received this message via facebook yesterday.
"Please pray for one of our local Highline Heroes working storm restoration in New York....he was badly beaten last night while walking out of a restaurant by a man upset that his power still wasn't on. He is in flight back to Florida now....his injuries are very serious but thankfully not life threatening. Thankful that another one of our Lineman walked out just behind him and the attacker stopped and ran or this could of had a much more painful ending for all. I will withhold his name for now out of respect for him and his family but please pray for him, his family, all of our Highline Heroes and that the person responsible will be located and justice will be served."
