Chicopee Police are asking for prayers for one of their own.
Officer Mark Wilkes played in the annual “Battle of the Badges” charity hockey game last weekend and when he returned home he felt ill and called for an ambulance. While in the ambulance he suffered what police describe as a “major medical episode.”
According to a statement from the department last night, “Officer Wilkes is currently in the ICU undergoing treatment.
While Officer Wilkes has a long road to recovery, we would like to thank the Chicopee Fire Department for the care they provided to our brother in blue. We also want to thank all of the Doctors and Nurses that are continuing to care for Officer Wilkes in the hospital.”
