Not sure who Rafferty is. Unless I'm mistaken, there's a Golden Knight named Rafferty. 1st class if my memory serves me correct.

What supposedly happened? KIA?

Paul Rafferty is one of the greatest RW Competitors in the world.
He is a 5 time world champion in 8 way with the Golden Knights, who recently retired from the Army.
He is one hell of a skydiver and a good friend as well, I heard he was last in Cross Keys, NJ. and I also am worried as to what has happened. I don't have any specifics and I won't say anything until I find out the facts.
I hope it is not true, My prayers are with Paul and his family.

I would suggest that postings on this subject go on hold until the family decides to release current information. Thoughts and prayers would be in order, however.

I was there at CK today and was told that he received some rather severe burns in an accident last night not related to a skydive.

I dont know the extent of his burns or the nature of the accident other than they were not received on a skydive.
The information I got indicated that he is alive.

Chuck called the hospital and couldn't get anyone on the line. The only info the hospital would release is that he's still in critical condition.

I've been told his ex-wife and daughter were flown up today to be with him.

This cast a somber pall over everything this weekend. Raff is the type of person who can meet you once and remember you months later. He helped Cora and I numerous times with advice and tips. Our thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family.

I have nothing to add that wasn't already in kturners post. Its all true, its sad and its not something you wanted to see. From the little I knew Raff, He is an awesome guy.

or maybe just merge the two threads so we don't have two different sources of info? That'd be cool.

Arguably, this thread seems to be for vibes and the other for information. With some discipline it will remain that way and may be more efficient.
