"The bleeding in Mike's head has stabilized and he went to surgery to fix his femur break. The break is serious and rare and he'll be in surgery about 4 hours. After recovery the trauma docs are hoping to take him off his sedation and ventilator. He will be much more comfortable then. The doctors are not worried about the bleeding in the head. It is minimal and will heal on its own. Thank you guys for all your support and texts. It means a lot to us. Will read them all to him later. He looks amazing for what he went thru and we are very lucky he is alive. I can't wait to give him a big hug!"
"Outerlimits Offshore Powerboat Company President/CEO and Founder Michael Fiore passed away this evening from injuries sustained during a boating event in Missouri over the weekend. Mr. Fiore, age 44 of Bristol, RI developed complications from surgery when he died at University Hospital in Missouri. The entire Outerlimits family is devastated by the loss of our friend and leader of our company. Mike's love for high speed boating was only out matched by the love for his wife, three young children and his family. Details on arrangements will be made and released in the coming days, and in the meantime we hope all understand the family's need to grieve for their loss privately," said Frank Sciacca, General Counsel of Outerlimits Offshore Powerboat Company.
