Rodeo star’s 3-year-old son dies two weeks after tragic river accident

The little son of popular rodeo performer Spencer Wright, Levi Wright, has away.

Following a near-drowning episode on May 21, the three-year-old suffered a catastrophic brain damage and passed away.

Levi was admitted to a hospital in Salt Lake City on May 21 after he unintentionally ran a toy tractor into a river close to the family’s residence. Levi was discovered unconscious by the local police approximately one mile downstream.

Even though the boy was first deemed brain dead and was not expected to live, he started to show improvement.

“LEVI ARISTA! We don’t know much, so I’m shaken, but the doctor said it was alright for me to feel thrilled about it, and I did! On Facebook, Kallie Wright, his mother, commented, “My baby is so tough!”

Regretfully, the MRI results the next day “weren’t good.”

 

“It’s just pictures that suggest a certain quality of life, but we’re broken.” What Levi does over the next few days will be our true storyteller, according to Kallie.

Prayers were still requested by Levi’s family and friends as he fought on in the hospital.

Kallie broke the heartbreaking news on June 2.

“We are here in the face of our biggest fear after several sleepless nights, lots of research, multiple conversations with the world’s best neurologists, and millions of prayers,” the author said. “Levi gave us just enough information to buy us some time in this.” We prayed that he would overcome the obstacles and show us that he wanted to stay, but it’s clear now that he only wanted to give us some time to come to terms with letting him leave.

Following innumerable examinations, scans, and discussions, Levi’s life support was removed by the Wright family.

On June 3, a family friend named Mindy Sue Clark verified Levi’s passing on Facebook.

“I am at a loss for words to describe how difficult the past two weeks have been. My phone rang the night of his accident, and I got the message last night that he had to leave. Even though it seems like someone tore my heart out and squeezed it in front of me, I don’t want to dwell on the negative or depressing things. My intention is to concentrate on the numerous miracles that all of us witnessed throughout those twelve days.

“The most ideal three-year-old ever observed.” He was so wonderful that we lost him. In the previous 12 days, this baby boy moved mountains. He was able to unite so many people. We were given light by a youngster in a very dark world. He embodies all his parents might have hoped for in a child.

The Wright family is in our thoughts and prayers during this very trying time.
