The injury occurred when Ryan was changing the brakes on his car and the vehicle began to tilt while he was under it.
"I couldn't get out in time and the car landed on my head," he says. "I have a vivid memory that my head was being crushed and the sound of blood pouring to the garage concrete. I had a brief thought of, 'I'm going to die.'"
The accident caused bleeding in Ryan's brain, multiple fractures to his skull, a broken jaw, cheekbone fractures, and ruptured eardrums. Ryan was in the ICU for 5 days after the accident.
He's left with potential long-term issues with his vision, hearing, his ability to smile and he is experiencing reoccurring pain. "I don't know if my life will ever be the same again," Ryan tells The Doctors.
To help Ryan and his family, Hello Bello is providing 6 months' worth of diapers, wipes, vitamins, and personal care items to his family. If you would like to help with Ryan's recovery, please consider donating to their GoFundMe.
