beijingkids has learned that international school teacher, Jonathan Sokoloff, is in a critical conditional at the international department of a local hospital.

Sokoloff was involved in an accident in the early hours of Saturday morning while riding his scooter home. An American expat from Florida, he has been living in Beijing for almost two years.

Friends of Sokoloff have organized an indiegogo crowdfunding page where donations can be made on his behalf. Given the critical nature of Sokoloff's condition, they say funds raised will go toward the cost of bringing his family to China, as well as to the ongoing medical expenses of his mother, whom Sokoloff has been helping support on his teaching salary.
