Trooper Stephen Bigusiak has been with the Massachusetts State Police for 17 years. The retired Marine prides himself in staying in shape and competes in several amateur sports.
He did not want the COVID shot, but was compelled to get it to keep his job, pay his mortgage, and provide for his 6 year old son.
He took the Pfizer shot and experienced adverse symptoms, including breathing difficulties, almost immediately after he got the injection less than 2 weeks ago.
He was working a detail Friday night 10/29 when his breathing problems worsened. He collapsed and was taken by ambulance to the Concord barracks and then to the Nashoba Hospital in Ayer.
He has been diagnosed with a blood clot in his lungs. The doctors have told him that the blood clot appears to have formed in his lungs and did not travel up from the thighs as is commonly the origin of clots.
He was still hospitalized as of Saturday night, 10/30.
“How many more fallen troopers will it take before the Governor stops making them participate in experimental medicine?” Asks Attorney Bill Gens who represents hundreds of State Troopers and other first responders who oppose medical mandates #NoJabNoJob options.
UPDATE: Released, prescribed drugs including blood thinners to prevent clotting issues. At home. Out of service currently.
