The 3-year-old son of rodeo star Spencer Wright is in critical condition after driving his toy tractor into a river in Utah.

The accident happened on Tuesday, May 21, around 6 p.m. local time. The Beaver County Sheriff’s Office received an emergency call and quickly responded to the scene. They found the child and provided immediate life-saving measures before taking him to Beaver Valley Hospital. From there, he was airlifted to Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City for more advanced care.

Family friend Mindy Sue Clark has documented and shared any new information on the 3-year-old’s condition, providing regular updates on Facebook.

“Levi’s heart is beating on its own, he has a will to breathe but his sweet little brain was without oxygen too long and there is no coming back from that,” Clark wrote. “We cuddled him all night and feel strongly that his spirit is no longer with us. We can’t be selfish and drag this out for days, he doesn’t deserve that. Shortly we will stop care and hold him close until his last breath on earth. My Baby, my beans, Mom & Dad love you always and forever!”

The latest update shared by Clark was on Wednesday, May 22, which included information from the boys mother, Kallie.

“Not much change in Levi since our last update but I do want you to know that we have received multiple small miracles along the way and doctors are certainly surprised by the strides he has made. He is fevering so they’re keeping him really cold which is hard to watch, I can just hear him saying ‘Mommy, I’m pretty coldy.’ He is getting an eeg, to monitor any brain activity and we haven’t heard much on what they’re seeing yet.”

“They’ve also started him on antibiotics and will do an MRI Friday or Saturday,” the post added. “We are unbelievably humbled by the love and prayers we have received, the help in all forms that is flooding our way is surreal. The doctors and staff here at primaries have been outstanding! We don’t know what the future holds, please don’t let prayers for my baby dim or his story become old news! Keep praying for him.”

Spencer Wright, ranked 35th in the world in 2023 by ProRodeo and the World Champion in 2014, and his wife, Kallie, have not publicly spoken about the situation yet.
