Eric’s Story: Gunshot Victim Defeats the Odds

In the summer of 2022, a routine domestic violence call quickly changed Clearcreek Township Police Officer Eric Ney and his family’s life when he was shot while on duty. The severity of his injury was quickly recognized and CareFlight was called to the scene to transport Eric by air to Miami Valley Hospital’s Level I Trauma Center.

Upon arrival, trauma surgeon Peter Ekeh, MD, and the trauma team continued lifesaving care. Over the next few months, Eric would undergo multiple surgeries and hospitalizations. With the support of his family and strong faith in God, he’s grateful to be back home with his family and enjoying life.
