Todd Blair Injured After SRL Robodock Show in Amsterdam

Todd Blair

Our good friend Todd Blair, a long-time Survival Research Labs crew member, was seriously injured during the clean-up after Saturday’s SRL show at Robodock 2007 in Amsterdam. A blog has been setup to track Todd’s recovery and a fund has been set up to cover his medical expenses.

Laughing Squid sends out our best wishes to Todd’s family, friends and the SRL crew. We all hope that Todd has a quick recovery.

Here’s more information from the SRL blog:

In a freak accident veteran crew member Todd Blair was knocked to the ground sustaining critical head injuries after the show on Saturday. The doctors in Amsterdam are keeping him in an induced coma and won’t have a complete prognosis for awhile. In deference to Todd, Alex (Todd’s girlfriend) and the families we had been keeping the information about this tragic occurence within the family. Amy Critchett and Eric Paulos were with Todd during his surgery and now Alex has arrived and he seems to be responding well to her presence.

Many people have been concerned and asking for details so while it is too early to determine what the outcome is, the news as of this morning is that his condition has stabilized and we will know more shortly.

Keep the love, prayers, and healing thoughts for Todd coming, it definitely makes a difference!

In the meantime, for those who want to show their support checks can be made out to Alexandra Ismerio and sent to
