Help Mike Bird

A 19-year-old kid suffered a severe spinal injury during the April 14th date of the Stick Tight tour (Terror, Trapped Under Ice, etc.) in Buffalo, NY. He is without insurance, and facing a lengthy hospital stay following emergency spinal surgery. A Paypal account has been setup to collect donations. A full description of the situation, as well as information on how to make a donation, can be found here.

This really sucks. Hardcore is a family and it really sucks when someone from that family is hurt. I hope he recovers and can figure out this financial situation. My condolences.

Damn that's rough. Didn't something else crazy happen at a Trapped Under Ice show recently, too?

This incident has nothing to do with Trapped Under Ice. They weren't playing when this happen, I'm pretty sure.

this sucks...its unfortunate that stuff like this happens....a similar incident happened at a Stick to your guns show in Syracuse last year.

this kind of story makes me nervous to stage dive. its a rush and fun and all but kids gotta realize how dangerous it can be.

Stick To Your Guns is on the tour too.

I read in another post that was linked from TUI's twitter that the kid did a stage dive, and somebody dove right after him, right on top of him, and he fell weird hitting his head and back. Either way, it really sucks.

EDIT: I found the link.

I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often, but not surprised that it happened at a Terror show.
Wish this guy a full & fast recovery. Wish I could donate to help the d00d out.
