Tornado Survivor Denied Workers' Compensation

Mark Lindquist is a hero. He was even recognized by the House and Senate of the Missouri legislature as being “a true hero and inspiration to others.” Why is he a hero? Why is every lawmaker in the state giving him praise? Lindquist nearly gave his life in an effort to save three developmentally disabled adults during a tornado earlier this year in Joplin, Missouri. In the course of his heroic efforts, all of his ribs were broken, his teeth knocked out and he was in a coma for two months.

He thought workers’ compensation would take care of him, but that wasn’t the case. To see how the story ends for Mr. Lindquist, please read the rest of the story on Yahoo! News.
