He is currently comatose and Emily is trying to bring him back to the U.S. The family friend tells FOX 5 the couple has spent their life savings, around $250,000, and even sold their wedding rings as part of this effort.

They say the insurance company has not paid anything, and they are desperate for help.

A GoFundMe has been set up to assist the couple in getting Ben back to the U.S. FOX 5 will have more on this story on FOX 5 News at 10.
