What Happened to Bernie Smith?

Buffalo Oklahoma Firefighters Association confirmed the tragic accident happened to Chief Bernie Smith on their Facebook page and the statement reads the following,

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Chief Bernie Smith of the Englewood Fire Department. Bernie was loading cattle in Elk City last night when a cow tried to get the best of him. (The cow didn’t make it by the way!) Bernie suffered a fractured skull in the process and it will be a long road ahead. The human body is very resilient but brain swelling is a tough one. His pupils were starting to be reactive this morning, and that is a wonderful sign.

I spoke early this morning with Levi, he and the family are hopeful. They know better than I that Bernie is one tough son of a gun! I have met a lot of people in my life, but I haven’t met much better than the entire Smith family. Our prayers and love go out to them and we ask that you will pray for them as well.

Well, not a whole lot of information this evening but this is what we know they put in a shunt to drain the spinal fluid of the brain to relieve pressure. That did help with the pressure.
