A soldier wounded in a deadly bombing in the Syrian town of Manbij last week is fighting for his life in a military hospital in Germany, according to family and friends.
Capt. Jonathan Turnbull, 32, a native of Gaylord, Mich., is being treated at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center and is in serious condition, a spokeswoman said Tuesday. She declined to provide details due to privacy laws.
Serious condition means vital signs may be unstable and outside normal limits, and that the patient’s prospects remain uncertain, according to the Landstuhl hospital’s website.
After the deadly attack on Wednesday, which killed four Americans and more than a dozen others, Turnbull was evacuated for treatment first to Baghdad to be stabilized and then to Germany, the family had said in statements to the press and on social media.
