An account has been set up at TLC Credit Union in Astoria, 85 W. Marine Drive, for Daniel Umbriaco and family.

Umbriaco, a Knappa High School graduate, broke his neck in an accident in an above-ground swimming pool June 14 and is paralyzed from his chest down. He's a U.S. Army sergeant and was home on leave after serving a year in Afghanistan.

His wife, Jamie (Babcock) Umbriaco, and son, Aidan Umbriaco, would appreciate prayers and any donations to help defray the cost of visiting him at Legacy Emanuel Hospital in Portland, and at Rio Good Samaritan in Portland, where he will be undergoing rehabilitation for many months.

For information, call Arlene and Richard Babcock at 458-5433.
