Barely two weeks after a tragedy, retired firefighter, Jim Rodgers is back in the hospital.
A private jet carrying Rodgers and three others crashed in South Bend, Indiana. The collision killed businessman, Wes Caves, and former OU quarterback Steve Davis.
Rodgers' son-in-law, Christopher Evans, survived the crash.
Since that day, friends and family haven't asked for much, just what matters most to them: prayer.
Rodgers’ daughter, Kym Lindsay, has been keeping loved ones updated on her dad's condition through Facebook.
On Wednesday, she wrote "dad out of surgery. Everything was successful."
"Doctors felt more damage was being done to his neck and spinal cord," said TFD Spokesman Stan May.
May, said the crash broke Rodgers' neck. He had to take a plane ride back to Oklahoma after suffering through the crash in Indiana.
Doctors in Indiana had upgraded his condition, but a blood clot returned him to critical. Firefighters in Indiana took care of Rodgers' family, even stationing a firefighter at the hospital.
TFD firefighters have been on standby. They’re supporting Rodger’s family.
"You're with these people a third of your life. Even after you retire," said May.
A fund has been set up for Jim Rodgers at the Firefighter’s Credit Union. Firefighters in Indiana have also donated money to help the family.
