Musician and sound engineer Jeff Saenz missing his left hand and the bulk of his proper arm next a downed power line incident in June.

DALLAS — The Dallas tunes group came alongside one another this week to increase funds for a person of their personal at Dallas Granada Theater. 

Musician and audio engineer Jeff Saenz is recovering soon after he was stunned by a downed electrical power line in early June.

“This was just a regular night time, a wonderful night time. There’s no mad storm blowing through town,” Saenz said. “There had been downed electrical power lines that have been not specific to our house by any usually means, that had fallen into our front lawn.”

Saenz home shed electric power and he walked out to see what was going on. Via the darkness of the night time, he did not see the downed electricity line in his front garden. 

“I just walked out my front doorway and our existence improved,” Saenz mentioned. “I walked out the entrance doorway, and that’s the past matter that I recall till I woke up in the healthcare facility 11 times afterwards.”

His girlfriend Monica Cooper was inside of the residence at the time. 

“I was standing by a window that overlooks the property and I observed a large, orange flash of light,” Cooper claimed. “I started off contacting for Jeff simply because I was concerned about it, I didn’t know what had happened. And when he did not respond, I ran out the entrance doorway and which is the place I found him, and he was laying on the ground in flames, and there was a energy line on best of him.” 

Monica and her neighbors have been equipped to get him out. Emergency responders rushed him to Parkland Medical center. 

Saenz misplaced his remaining hand and the bulk of his ideal arm. He experienced 11 surgeries and expended 10 weeks in the healthcare facility. 

That’s why his good friends realized they required to do something to help.

“We realized what we could do to aid,” neighbor and buddy Ric Bowden stated. “A whole lot of fantastic artists for a very good cause.”

“Everyone is coming alongside one another unselfishly offering their time, supplying their skills, giving almost everything that they can give,” organizer Tim Menchu stated. “He (Jeff) understands what he’s receiving. I sat down with him very last 7 days. And he explained he cannot wait around to shell out it forward.”

Saenz is in the early stages of a very long street to recovery. He hopes to get prosthetics, so a single day he could be capable to produce additional music.
