Washington Redskin safety Sean Taylor passed away early this morning after injuries suffered from a gunshot wound. The 24-year old Pro football player was shot at home during an apparent armed burglary. The gunshot was fired at his leg and damged his femoral artery causing significant blood loss. Taylor had been airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, FL early Monday.
At one point Monday night there was hope after Taylor squeezed a nurse’s hand. However, he never regained consciousness. Doctors aren’t sure how he squeezed the hand, some say he may have been trying to say goodbye.
Taylor’s girlfriend and 1-year old daughter were also in the house at the time of the shooting, fortunately neither were hurt.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family at this troubled time. May he find peace with the Lord.
