MMA fighter Marcus Kowal’s son Liam was being walked in his trolley by his 15-year-old aunt in Hawthorne, California on Saturday when he was tragically struck by a 72 year old drunk driver.
Donna Marie Higgins was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving and hit-and-run after she allegedly attempted to flee the scene but was blocked from doing so by witnesses.
Kowal has now spoken of his grief and said he is surprised his reaction to his son’s death has not been more revengeful and hateful. On the contrary, Marcus set on a mission to drive awareness by launching a heartfelt, inspiring documentary film that showcases the power of the human spirit to overcome even the worst of tragedies.
Featuring Marcus Kowal and his wife & business partner Mishel Eder, the film tells the story of the heartbreaking loss of their son Liam to a drunk driver, their incredible journey fighting for justice, and the inspiring power of their love in the face of tragedy.
The more people this gets out to, the more people hear Liam’s story and maybe think twice before drinking and driving.
