The horrors of socialized medicine have reached our shores

We were outraged when Charlie Gard was being denied healthcare by a socialized medical system in England and then the same with Alfie Evans. This time it's hitting closer to home. David Ruiz II suffered a stroke on New Year's Eve and went into a coma.

He is in Tucson, Arizona and he is in the fight for his life. Watch this clip to hear his mother recount what has happened and hear her plea for help and if you can donate, they have a gofundme account set up in his name.

WATCH: This is the Maybach Ultimate Luxury SUV (2020)

Mercedes-Benz is presenting the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury. The design of the crossover, based on an exclusive high-end saloon and an SUV, follows the philosophy of Sensual Purity.

The show car combines the comfort and typical strengths of both body styles. These include the raised seating position and the athletic looks. The Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury is conceived as an electric car. Thanks to its four compact permanent-magnet synchronous motors, it offers fully variable all-wheel drive. The output from the powertrain is 550 kW (750 horsepower). The flat underfloor battery has a usable capacity of around 80 kWh, producing an NEDC range of over 500 kilometres (according to EPA: over 200 miles). The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155mph).

The fast-charging function is also convenient: thanks to DC charging based on the CCS standard, the system allows a charging capacity of up to 350 kW. In just five minutes, enough power can be charged to achieve an additional range of around 100 kilometres (62 miles).
