This spring a husband and wife couple, along with their two teenage sons ventured to a popular vacation destination, St. John. Four days into their vacation emergency officials were called to the family’s rental. Inside, the mother and two sons we’re suffering from seizures and the father had fallen unconscious.

Almost five months later, the family is still not the same and may never be. The mother is said to be in good condition, however her husband, and two sons, are still struggling. According to officials, the father
and younger of the two sons are conscious but paralyzed from the neck down. The other son is in an outof a coma, and doesn’t have any sensation in his limbs.
