A Utah man has been in a Venezuelan prison now for more than a year. Monday night, Josh Holt’s mom posted an update on his condition.

“Today Josh Holt had an accident in prison,” the post said. “He fell about 9 to 10 feet getting off the bunk of 3 men.” 

Holt’s mom said he hit the ground tail bone first and then hit his head. “Our lawyers have requested medics to come into check him. The prison wont let them in to help him,” the post read.

The Holt family will be holding a rally in Riverton Friday. They are expected to speak on the latest developments on Josh’s incarceration. The event starts at 7:30 p.m. on July 7th at the Riverton Park Old Dome Meeting Hall, 1452 West 12600 South on the north side of the park.
