The construction workers hurt earlier last week at Herrin Hospital are receiving a little financial help. Devon Patterson, of Herrin, and Shane Hale, of Eldorado fell more than 20 feet while working on scaffolding. The two men ended up in St Louis and Evansville hospitals in critical condition. Community member Mary Smith decided to set up a GoFundMe account to help with medical, travel, and other expenses that aren’t covered with workers compensation. The account has already raised more than $1000. To learn more about helping Devon and Shane click here.
