COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - A former Coeur d'Alene Police Officer who was critically injured in the line of duty will be the featured speaker at an event in Coeur d'Alene, Friday evening. Mike Kralicek is a recovering quadriplegic and motivational speaker who will be offering his secrets of survival after being shot in the face by a suspect in 2004. 

On December 28, 2004 Officer Kralicek was called to the scene, where he was ultimately shot, by Kootenai County deputies for backup and to follow up on a theft that the suspect had admitted to according to police. A deputy had the suspect, Michael Madonna, handcuffed and was conducting an interview. When Mike arrived Madonna had slipped his cuffs from his back to his front and had run into house to retrieve a .357 Magnum revolver when the deputy turned his back on the suspect for a moment. Officers chased Madonna into his house.

 

After Madonna got his gun, multiple gunshots were fired and Madonna was hit several times and killed. Officer Kralicek was shot in the jaw and bullet lodged in his neck. (Watch the video of the shooting here.)

 

Today, Mike Kralicek is a motivational speaker who shares his personal life story with people all over the country.

 

If you would like to here Mike's inspirational story of triumph, he will be speaking at the Friends of HREI Social, Friday July 20, at 6:00 p.m. The Human Rights Education Institute is located at 414 W. Mullan in Coeur d'Alene. If you can't make it to the event, watch KHQ Local News 11 at 11 for Mike Perry's report about his visit.
