Mormon Bishop Injured During Carjacking on Road to Recovery

Mormon Bishop Injured During Carjacking on Road to Recovery

In mid-August, we reported the story of LDS bishop David Charmbury, who suffered severe head trauma after a carjacking near Birmingham, England. Bishop Charmbury was placed in an induced coma after being found unconscious in the road near the Church, which he was opening up for Sunday meetings.

Earlier this month, the police were able to report that Bishop Charmbury was improving and “his condition is now described as stable.” His wife also spoke out to the public to thank everyone for their support. In speaking with the Observer, Rachael Charmbury said:

“David is getting stronger and making progress every day in the hospital. We are hopeful that he will be up and about soon. He is overwhelmed and deeply touched by all the good wishes and messages he has received. He is also very appreciative of the prayers that have been said on his behalf, from members of our church and other faiths alike.”

A man has been arrested in connection with the attack and charges have been filed.

    Now a days maximum Security monitoring are needed on all LDS Premises on Entrance Gates and Perimeter Fences.
    Carjacking are done when you at Stop or been block to stop. If there are Very High Resolutions Cameras around the
    Premises specially on the Gates and Fences. Criminals will be away avoiding the Premises. Recorded Security Systems 24/7.
    On the Road, only Stop when being Stop by Police with motorcycle Cops or Mobile Cars. Never Stop whoever on the Road,
    Avoid them keep moving faster.
