Reverend Billy Graham’s family got some devastating news this week, and they really need our prayers.
According to Daily Mail, Graham’s son-in-law Danny Lotz was found unconscious in his family’s pool at 3:45 pm on Monday. Lotz, who is married to Graham’s evangelist’s daughter Anne Graham Lotz, was photographed by a helicopter being treated on the side of his pool at his home in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Lotz, 78, was reportedly found unresponsive by his wife yesterday afternoon.
“He is currently in a hospital ICU receiving excellent care,” his family said in a statement. “There are no answers yet as to the outcome. The family is standing firm in faith, trusting Jesus. Thank you for your prayers.”
Lotz, a dental practitioner, has been suffering from chronic health problems for years now. A close friend of the family’s told the press that Lotz has been suffering from seizures due to diabetes lately, but it is not known whether that caused this particular incident.
“Ambulance has been there a couple times over a couple of years,” neighbor Jim Rugloski told reporters. “I always keep thinking ‘I wonder if Billy Graham is there.'”
Anne Graham Lotz, 67, has been married to Lotz since 1966. They have three children and three grandchildren.
Please pray for Lotz’s recovery, and for the Graham family during this difficult time!
