DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The Wiregrass Angel of Hope remembering the life of Jose Prado — a Dothan lineman who recently passed away after a construction accident.
Now here at home, a floral arrangement has been placed at the Angel of Hope statue at Westgate Park beside the library.
The Angel of Hope is a symbol of hope, a place to reflect, a place for healing and a special place for those who have lost a child to grieve.
Jose Prado, 23, was working at a construction site at a busy intersection in Montgomery.
While him and his crew were opening cones and rolling out cable lines, a car driving through the construction ran over the cables and the lines caught and swung Prado — leaving him with a battered chest.
Prado was transported to the UAB hospital to receive medical care but unfortunately he didn’t survive.
