On Saturday, a couple of armed thugs shot a police officer in the head, leaving the Atlantic City official paralyzed and fighting for his life on a ventilator. However, as soon as the scumbags arrived for their court hearing on Tuesday, they were greeted with the perfect surprise they never saw coming.
While responding to an armed robbery near Caesars Atlantic City Casino early Saturday morning, officers were met with an intense shootout. Martell Chisholm, 29, Demetrius Cross, 28, and Jerome Damon, 25, attempted to mug 3 civilians outside of the casino. When police arrived, however, the thieves instantly decided that someone was leaving in a body bag.
NJ.com reports that amid a hail of bullets, Officer Josh Vadell was shot in the head and Damon sustained several gunshot wounds. While Damon died on the scene, officer Vadell clung to life, making it to a local hospital in critical condition. Officer Vadell was placed on a ventilator and was reportedly at least partially paralyzed.
Miraculously, Officer Vadell’s wife announced this morning that not only was her husband taken off the ventilator because of his improvement, he was also regaining feeling and mobility in the left side of his body.
“Update on Josh… he is doing amazing!!! They took him off the ventilator this morning, he is responding with small words, able to sit supported in a chair and now having some movement on his Left side. He is improving every day and I believe it is from all of the love and support you all bring to our family. Sorry, I can not respond to you all individually, but I see you all care and I am telling Josh how much he is loved.”
As wonderful as this new is, another incredible report was made on the same day that Officer Vadell’s incredible recovery was announced. According to Blue Lives Matter, Chisholm and Cross arrived at their preliminary court hearing to find the courtroom filled with law enforcement officer dressed in their uniforms to support Officer Vadell.
