While the Mirror has so far been unable to get a statement from the town regarding the status of Barbara Michaux, sources have been able to fill in some of the details.
Sources tell the Mirror that a man fell off a floating dock into the water at Cape Charles Harbor, and in what can only been called a heroic effort, Ms. Michaux and another harbor employee, James Jones, along with Officer Chelsea of the CCPD orchestrated the rescue. The man was pulled from the water, with the only injuries being somewhat cold and wet from the frigid water temperatures. Michaux, however was taken by ambulance to Riverside Shore Memorial due to a severe back injury. Sources tell the Mirror that Michaux has undergone a second back surgery, but this has so far not been confirmed.
Due to HIPPA regulations, the Town is limited in the information it can release in regards to the incident, however staff has told the Mirror it will release as much information as it can once it determines what can be made public under the current regulations.
