Timothy King is listed in critical condition at the Pitt Memorial Hospital. He lost his legs when a vehicle hit him while he was about to help another motorist involved in an accident Monday in Colerain in Bertie County.
King's sister Jody says she is drained emotionally and physically. She has spent 48 tireless hours in the hospital--still in shock of what happened to her brother. "I was upset. I'm still upset. I've never seen my brother like that before."
Jody says she is used to seeing her brother being very active. She says Timothy is always playing paint ball or hanging around the bowling alley. King's active lifestyle, along with being a young 28 years-old is what doctors say will help aid the healing process.
King was recently ordained as a minister. Jody says Christian music is now playing in his room on an Ipod Greenville firefighters dropped off.
