Girl, 6, Tragically Passes Away in Freak Badminton Accident

When six-year-old Lucy Morgan perished in an unusual badminton accident, a tragic event took place. A fragment of metal from the racket’s grip came off as she swung it downward, severely injuring her skull. While Lucy and her family were vacationing in Limerick, Maine, this horrible accident happened.

Pastor Jesse Morgan, Lucy’s father, revealed the tragic events on his blog. He described how the metal piece impacted Lucy, who was unconscious but still breathing on her own.


After being evacuated to Maine Medical Center in Portland, she was taken to the closest hospital by ambulance. She had an operation there to alleviate pressure and treat her damage, but the medical staff informed her that there was little chance she would recover.

Jesse revealed, movingly, that Lucy had mentioned having a conversation with God about a month prior to the disaster. After asking her mother a few questions about getting “saved,” she left for her room to pray. She went to her room and prayed to God, confessing her faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus, according to Jesse’s account. What a blessing.


Jesse provided updates on Lucy’s health and broke the heartbreaking news of her declining cognitive abilities. The medical staff did everything they could, but Lucy’s injuries were too severe. Lucy Lynn Morgan unfortunately died at 4 a.m. the next day. Jesse conveyed his appreciation for his friends’ and family’s overwhelming love and support during this trying time.


Family members started a GoFundMe campaign to support the bereaved family, and it has already surpassed its $100,000 initial goal. The money received will help pay for their medical bills, family members’ accommodations, and meals while they are away from home. People’s love and sympathy for the Morgans is evident from the tremendous response to the campaign.

We are truly sorry for the loss that the Morgan family has experienced. May Lucy rest in peace and may the love and care that surround her family bring them consolation.
