Nick Malloy is recovering in surgical intensive care from injuries after Wednesday's auto accident.
His father, 13WMAZ's Frank Malloy, said Nick will probably be in the ICU for several days, but that his family is optimistic about his recovery.
Frank Malloy updated his 13WMAZ co-workers and friends by email early Thursday.
Hi 13WMAZ Family:
We are truly overwhelmed by all of your thoughts and prayers. Words cannot express our deep appreciation.
Nick is still in Surgical ICU recovery and will probably be there for several days. He is stable and on a ton of medication.
He suffered numerous injuries but hopefully nothing that won't heal with time.
We are blessed he is still alive and are thankful for such wonderful friends and co-workers.
Your continued prayers are very much appreciated.
