The stepmother of a 22 year old man working the Fire Ball ride at Curwood Festival over the weekend said in social media comments that he was transported to the hospital and was stable, but had lost part of his leg after a tragic accident that occurred just before the carnival opened on Saturday.

Now, the family says he would like your encouragement and well-wishes, and is asking anyone willing, to send a note "to Nick" at 215 Oakwood Ave., Owosso MI 48867.
