According to a previous East Texas News story, Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to County Road 420 after NCSO Dispatch received a 911 call from Blake Foxworth, who said that had stabbed his father over an argument.

When NCSO deputies arrived at the home where the father and son both lived, they found George Foxworth, 53, on the couch. According to a press release, George Foxworth appeared to be unconscious, and he was covered with blood.

NCSO deputies started life-saving measures to stop the bleeding and gave George Foxworth medical aid until EMS personnel arrived at the scene, the press release stated.

A medical helicopter was called to the scene due to the seriousness of the victim’s condition. EMS took the victim to a nearby school, which was the nearest landing zone for the helicopter. The victim was then taken by helicopter to a Tyler hospital where he was still in surgery as of Thursday afternoon.
