Saw his friend swept away

A GoFundMe set up to support Silver Star avalanche victim Nathan Fisher has reached and surpassed its goal in just one day, climbing above $21,000 in donations. 

Tyler Williams set up the fundraiser after witnessing his friend Fisher getting swept away by a sudden small avalanche at the ski resort on Wednesday. 

"The slide beat up Nate pretty bad, leaving him with a dislocated femur, broken ankle, multiple broken ribs, broken jaw, multiple bruises and cuts, a deep laceration to the throat, and more," Williams wrote on the GoFundMe page. 

Williams reached out to Castanet to help spread the word about Fisher's long road to recovery, and help his beloved friend. 

"If you have ever had the pleasure to be in Nate's presence you will understand why so many people are concerned for his well being," Williams said. "He is constantly looking out for others and trying to make everyone else's lives better. He stays positive in all situations and is the best human to be around!"

Williams set a $15,000 goal, and with the help of 123 individual donors over one day, he easily surpassed that. As of the writing of this article, it had hit $21,330.

"He has been through mental and physical trauma and we would love for him to come home without any financial trauma," Williams wrote. He plans to update the GoFundMe page with details of Fisher's recovery as it progresses.
