For Patrick Mahomes we can add something off the field that is pretty amazing. Mahomes is set up to auction off an authentic, autographed Lubbock, Texas Fire Rescue helmet to help the families of first responders.
It was announced that all the proceeds raised will go to the families of a firefighter and police officer killed while working the scene of a crash caused by icy conditions in Texas January 11th. Proceeds will also go to a firefighter who was injured in the incident.
Emergency responders arrived at the scene of a single-vehicle accident last Saturday morning. While they were there, a second vehicle towing a trailer crossed the median about 25 yards from the first accident, Lubbock Police Chief Floyd Mitchell said.
A third vehicle also crossed and struck two firefighters and one police officer, Mitchell said.
Officer Nicholas Reyna, 27, and Paramedic Eric Hill, 39, were killed, police said. Firefighter Matt Dawson, 30, was hospitalized in critical condition.
“The people who put on this badge, the people who put on that badge, they give their life to their communities. We are true servants. To my family here in Lubbock, my police department and fire department family, hearts go out to them,” Mitchell said.
Lubbock had an inch of snow that night and the roads were icy last Saturday.
Bidding began Thursday and at this blog posting the current bid was $12,100.00
