After a chainsaw accident severely damaged his left wrist, an Elbridge musician is facing an uncertain future. But he’s not facing it alone.
A GoFundMe for guitarist Loren Barrigar has raised more than $48,000 in a little more than a day. The money will support Barrigar while he’s unable to perform music, as he not only faces daily expenses but also providing for his three sons. Before the accident, Barrigar performed hundreds of shows a year, according to a news release.
The accident took place Oct. 1. Barrigar’s chainsaw kicked back, wounding his left wrist. He also immediately noticed that his third and fourth fingers on his left hand were locked into place, and he couldn’t feel or move them.
