Some people have been asking about +Ptah Dunbar
, a WordPress core contributor and an organizer of WordCamp Miami and local WordPress meetups. He's also a good friend of mine who resides in South Florida (he's in Miami, and i'm in Ft. Lauderdale). After speaking with a family member just now I have some news I can pass along:
Ptah, on a motorcycle, was involved in a head-on collision in Miami on Wednesday. He went through the front window of a taxi i'm told. Without a helmet. He was pronounced dead on the scene, but was able to be brought back. He was just able within the last 24 hours to be able to speak and move a little bit. As for now, he's conscious and able to speak. He is "already cracking jokes".
He's currently at a trama center at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, Florida.
He is able to take visitors, so I'm planning on seeing him shortly. I have relayed the best wishes of the WordPress community through his family to him.
If you would like to leave a message for him, I think here is a good place to do it for the moment. I'll try to answer any questions I can, since i'll be speaking with his family soon again.
