Efforts to help the family of Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office Detective Tom Makurat

On September 11, 2009, one of Detective Makurat’s 13 year old twin sons, Kyle, collapsed during gym class, stopped breathing and became pulse-less. School staff performed CPR until paramedics arrived. Kyle was later flown by helicopter to the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, in Milwaukee, where he remains. On September 12th, Kyle’s heart stopped a second time and hospital staff performed CPR. He had open heart surgery on September 13th to repair his damaged, young heart. Kyle is still in the hospital showing signs of improvement, but a long recovery is expected.
