“It was a miracle and a tragedy, all in one day,” Mike’s widow, Christie, says. “It’s hard to balance all those emotions.”

Although Laney suffered multiple broken bones and injuries, it is understandable that nothing is more painful than the fact that her dad is no longer with them. Mike is truly a hero.

“In my heart of hearts, I know that he truly did save her, and he protected her,” Christie Perdue said.

A fundraising page was created for him and his family and it already exceeded $150,000 to help the family with financial issues as they grieve the loss of Mike Perdue.

“He was just an amazing human being and we’ll spend the rest of our life just honoring his memory,” Christie said.
