Heroic deputy needs help after storm
STEINHATCHEE, Fla. -- Deputy Robert Lundy of Taylor County, known for his heroics when he recovered from a gunshot wound, is now suffering from the effects of Hurricane Hermine.
He was in Perry getting his cruiser serviced back in 2014 when a disgruntled employee opened fire at the dealership.
Lundy got shots to his liver, colon, and intestine before saving the lives of everyone around him and killing the shooter.
Now, his wife and children are suffering the loss of property after their home was completely flooded with saltwater.
His family lost most of their personal belongings.
Lundy said, "This is another bad thing that happened to us but we weren't the only ones with damage. Everybody in the community got affected."
He and his family are working to repair the damages to their home. In the meantime, they are staying at a family friend's home.
There is a GoFundMe account to support the family.
