Cordele teen suing Crisp County following head injury


Reico Harvey, 19, is suing Crisp County after suffering head trauma from a fallen tree. In July, Harvey was a passenger in his sister's car when a tree fell on it.

Harvey has a visible scar on his head and is still not permitted to do any heavy lifting or driving. He says that the tree was dead and should have been chopped down.

"In my personal opinion, yes I think it should have been cut down and the accident would have never had happened," Harvey said. "I don't remember arriving at Crisp Regional Hospital, I don't remember being incubated, I don't remember anything. I just remember waking up Tuesday morning and being in Macon there in ICU."

Harvey's co-workers at the Crisp Regional Hospital held a fundraiser for him in July to help him pay for his hospital.
