Benefit scheduled to aid injured North Charleston firefighter Darin Kingery
A benefit will be held Friday at 6 p.m. for North Charleston Firefighter Darin Kingery, who was seriously injured last month when he was struck by an allegedly drunk driver while working an accident scene.
The benefit will be at Pierpont Pub, 2366 Ashley River Road in West Ashley. There is a requested $5 donation at the door. This will cover the meal, which will include hamburgers and hot dogs.
There are several events planned for the fundraiser, including a corn hole tournament and various raffles.
Kingery, an engineer, ended up in intensive care at Medical University Hospital on June 8 when an allegedly drunken man, who was in the country illegally, drove a car into him and five others.
Kingery’s right leg was broken in several places, and an infection spread through the limb. He underwent several surgeries, including amputation of his right leg below the knee.
