    Man down

    I am sure Peter (P Mustang) will not mind me quoting his FaceBook post below about Chris Ellis (Yank Tank Mad) terrible accident yesterday.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hello Folks, Not a nice post I am afraid.
    A dear personal friend of mine. A fantastic person and a wonderful asset to the Mustang community, Chris Ellis of Horsepower Kustoms was involved in a freak accident yesterday.
    He is badly burned over 30% of his body and is currently in a medically induced Coma getting specialist treatment.

    His partner saved him and is as you might expect very upset and concerned for his condition
    Chris is a great friend to me personally and has always asked about my well being and business. We speak almost daily and support each other as friends and business owners.
    I am devastated at this news and after I was alerted by Cath his partner of this situation I asked if i could let the community know as I know you all will want to give your support and thoughts to Chris and his family at this very difficult time

    Please keep Chris and his family in your thoughts today and send positive healing thoughts his way as his road to recovery will be long and difficult.
    Many thanks, Peter Cavallo

    Peter has set up a Just Giving page to help Cath, his partner during this extremely difficult time.

    If you can spare a couple of quid to help one of our own then follow the link below - thanks

                  today’s update.

                  Spoke to Catherine this AM. Chris is on a new machine at a new hospital. I believe it’s called an ECMO machine. He is still in a coma and his functions are being handled externally. He is getting oxygen which is the most Important thing. Things are not ideal but they are not as grave as they were yesterday.

                  Regards. Peter
