He was performing routine maintenance on an elevated billboard sign and came in contact with high voltage power lines that caused him to fall. Unable to move his legs, he laid there for an extended period of time until someone who lives close to the scene discovered him and called for help. He was transported to Hillcrest Hospital in Waco then air lifted to Parkland Hospital in Dallas where he is currently receiving treatment for the extensive injuries he suffered. A long term diagnosis is still unknown. The entire Goodwin family appreciates the overwhelming concern and support for Garth. Of course all prayers and well wishes you'd like to pass along are appreciated more than you will ever know.
