Edward “Eddie” DiDonato Jr., 23, is still in critical condition at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, where he’s expected to undergo his fourth surgery today, said Gina Furia Rubel, a close friend of the DiDonato family who is acting as their spokeswoman.
“The fact that Eddie is alive is a true miracle,” she said at a news conference held outside the Criminal Justice Center in Center City yesterday.
Rubel, who is also president and chief executive officer of Furia Rubel Communications, a local public-relations and marketing firm, said that DiDonato’s feeding tube has been removed but he still has “a long road ahead.”
Don’t get me wrong, I hope the guy recovers. But Gerald Ung deserves to be tried in a court of law, not a court of public opinion.
