Ochlocknee-- Twenty-two-year-old volunteer firefighter Bobby Joe Wood has been in a coma since May, when he lost control of this blazer on Georgia Highway 122.

His mother, Virginia Woods, says her son hasn't awakened yet, but opens his eyes to pain. The Ochlocknee community raised more than $4,000 last month, and an anonymous letter contained nearly $400.

If you would like to help you can mail donations to the Bank of Thomas County for the Bobby Joe Wood Fund, P.O. Box 2368, Thomasville, Georgia 31799.

Or deliver to the bank at 2484 East Pine Tree Boulevard. Wood's parents are also volunteer firefighters in Ochlocknee.
