BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A local man who suffered near-fatal injuries while vacationing in Mexico with his wife is back on U.S. soil.
Friends of the family say Brian Hodges was airlifted to a hospital here in California on Saturday, July 26. He was injured when he crashed into a cliff while zip-lining in Cabo San Lucas.
To make matters worse, the couple had to pay $50,000 up front and out-of-pocket for hospital treatment because their health insurance did not cover them internationally.
The Hodges family has now teamed up with Big Denweed's Smokehouse and Catering to help pay their growing medical bills. And starting this Sunday, a percentage of every meal sold will be donated to the family.
