Shrine On, a member of the Los Angeles burner community, was in a serious car accident earlier this week on Wednesday, October 5 while on his way to Joshua Tree. The details of the accident are still unclear but what we do know is that he is in the hospital and underwent surgery to repair a torn aorta which is the the main artery leading to the heart. Its a very serious operation that he made it through but he is still in critical condition in the intensive care unit. There are also fractures to his face and the extent of that damage is still unknown as the doctors are focusing on the issues with the heart.
Shrine's family is with him and they respectfully ask that they don't have any visitors at this time. Many people are reaching out right now looking for ways that they can help. There will be an account set up soon where people can make donations for medical costs but right now what Shrine needs most is our prayers and positive energy to get through this difficult time.
A Facebook page has as well as a blog has been set up to keep everyone informed as to his condition.Please keep Shrine and his family in your prayers.
Below is an interview BURNcast did with Shrine back in 2007.
