Well this sucks! While on his honeymoon Violent Affair guitarist Jesse Martin fell out of a 10 story building and was taken to the ICU. His new wife Destiny has created a GoFundMe page to help cover the costs of hospital bills and lawyer fees. Here’s what they had to say:
Jesse and Destiny Martin were married on May 25th, 2012, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The honeymoon was like a dream for a couple days, until Jesse had a horrific accident, falling 10 stories through a vent shaft inside the hotel stairwell. He laid there unconscious for hours until he finally woke up and kicked his way out of the shaft and miraculously walked back to his hotel room, where his new wife had been waiting for him all night, terrified that something terrible had happened.
The dream quickly turned into a nightmare when he was taken to a hospital by ambulance. The doctors discovered that he had fractured both eye sockets, had fractures at the base of his skull and nose, and had a deep laceration on his nose, all the way to the cartilage, which was visible before he received stitches. For the first 24 hours, he was leaking spinal fluid, but fortunately suffered no brain injuries.
It looks like Jesse will be unable to tour for quite some time. so if you’d like to donate to help the family pay for hospital and lawyer fees, check the whole page out here. Best wishes to Jesse and the entire Martin family!
