Wyman’s sister, Bethany, asked MCP to share her Facebook post thanking people for their prayers and well wishes:

Thank you to everyone for the many prayers and well wishes for my brother David James Wyman. Many of you have been asking how you can help following his line of duty accident, and right now we’re still in the process of adjusting to the whole situation and getting him on the track to healing, and aren’t even sure what is needed yet. However, his wife Alaina is an hour from home with him at the hospital and our parents are two hours away.

“If you’d like to send cards(which he would love!), patches, or donate gas cards or other gift cards such as prepaid debit/gift cards to help with fuel, hotel, and other travel expenses, you can drop them off or send them to the Mason County MI Sheriff’s Office (302 N. Delia St., Ludington, MI 49431). Thank you again for your support and prayers, they are greatly appreciated.”
