Over $20,000 raised in 1 day for NH soldier shot by fellow Army ranger
HUDSON - There has been an outpouring of support from the community after a soldier from New Hampshire was shot in the neck by another Army ranger earlier this week.
A GoFundMe page for Joshua Keller has already collected more than $20,000. He was accidentally shot in Washington, and the other solider is facing charges.
His father Matt Keller spoke with NH1 News earlier in the week. He said his family has been in Washington since Sunday to be with their son.
According to Matt, Joshua has been touch and go and in critical condition because of where the bullet entered his neck, ending up close to his spine.
However, Matt said Joshua has been showing signs of improvement and has responded well to treatment.
Joshua's twin brother Zachary was present when his brother was shot, and according to the GoFundMe page, the surgeons at the hospital credit him with saving Joshua's life by administering CPR controlling the bleeding.
