Local soldier fight for his life

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Forty-two military members with the 327th Chemical Unit rushed to be by Josh Manning's side, after hearing he was involved in a serious motorcycle accident March 23.

He served 6 years in the military. The 22-year-old is still in ICU at Erlanger. When his fellow brothers heard what happened, they called his family and asked how they could help.

He mom wanted them to donate O-positive blood because he received 30 units with a 24 hour period. 

When Josh leaves the hospital, the way he lives his life will change forever. After several failed attempts to repair his right leg, doctors amputated it Saturday afternoon. He also has a collapsed lung and a broken arm.

Josh's family say, they are amazed by the community support they have received that has been their saving grace.
