Industry. He was going mushroom picking with his son. A tree fell on their car
— My husband Darek and our son Gracjan went before dinner to the forest to pick mushrooms, where they went many times, 10 minutes from our house. Unfortunately, if they had left a minute later or earlier, our lives would be normal today, says Mrs. Agnieszka, wife of 37-year-old Dariusz.
On the way to the forest, a tree suddenly fell on the man’s car. His 17-year-old son escaped from the accident with only minor injuries. The branch hit mainly from the driver’s side, trapping Dariusz inside. Firefighters called to the scene had to cut out the vehicle’s door to get the man out. The 37-year-old suffered serious injuries and was transported by an LPR helicopter to a hospital in Rzeszów.
Dariusz first underwent complicated spine surgery. As a result of the accident, there was a multi-comminuted fracture of the upper vertebra with displacement of fragments, a fracture of the C3 vertebrae, a multi-comminuted fracture of the C4 vertebra, and a fracture of all columns of the spine at the C5 and C6 positions.

Darek faces a long and expensive fight for fitness
— My husband has been in the ICU for three weeks, his condition is very serious. Due to the injuries sustained, he became quadriplegic. There is still no attempt to breathe independently, which is currently supported by a respirator – describes the man’s wife.
Currently, there is a fight for Dariusz to start breathing on his own and for him to be disconnected from the ventilator. Once this is achieved, the long road to the 37-year-old’s return to at least partial fitness will begin. According to doctors, restoring feeling and movement in the limbs will require enormous effort and very long rehabilitation, which is associated with huge costs. That’s why Mrs. Agnieszka started an online fundraiser for her husband’s further treatment. You can support the family here.
