On Wednesday night, Chris Green attended a Black lives matter protest in Olde Towne Portsmouth, Virginia. During the evening demonstration, the crowd gathered around a Confederate soldier statue and began tearing it down.
But the celebratory mood quickly came to an end when a large piece of the statue toppled down on Green.
He was rushed to the hospital where according to his wife, Tonieh Brisbane-Green, he was put in a medically induced coma.
“I just feel like I’m in a dream right now. Like, I just need to be pinched to wake up and everything will go back to normal,” she said.
