Current in Noblesville has learned that Brian Durm, a candidate for the Noblesville Schools Board of Trustees, was severely injured after a fall while vacationing in Cancun, Mexico, with his wife, Kristin.
Information from a GoFundMe page set up for Durm and his family reads:
“Brian fell, causing a tremendous amount of trauma to his head, lungs, spinal column as well as breaking his arm. The damage to Brian’s head is quit severe, so much so that he needed the pressure drained from brain to survive. His left orbital bone is completely fractured and there is fear of him losing his vision.
“Brian spent a week in a hospital in Cancun until he was able to be Medevacked home to Indianapolis. Right now Brian is in the fight of his life in the Neurological ICU unit, fighting to be able to rejoin his family and friends and resume a normal life. Brian has shown some improvement with the swelling reduced around his face but his recovery will be extremely long.”

Durm has three children in Noblesville Schools and has been highly involved with the district’s parent-teacher organizations and political action committee, MillerYes. Durm recently participated in the Sept. 26 school board candidate forum at Noblesville City Hall.
