Alabama chief dies of COVID-19, regretted vaccine choice
An Alabama police chief died of COVID-19 after not getting vaccinated against the virus.
His widow has come forward and said he regretted that choice. Kristie Crabtree said her husband Buddy loved his job as chief of Ider and that he would have gotten vaccinated if he knew how hard he would have to fight for his life.
Crabtree went to get treated for the virus at Highlands Medical Center on Oct. 9. Ten days later he was flown to Memorial Hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee. His funeral is set for Wednesday.
