Rodeo star Spencer Wright’s 3-year-old son, Levi, has tragically passed away following a brain injury from a near-drowning incident.

On May 21, Levi Wright rode his toy tractor into a river near his family’s Utah home. Local law enforcement received an emergency call and found Levi unconscious about a mile downstream. He was then airlifted to a hospital in Salt Lake City, where he remained in the ICU for two weeks.

Initially, there was hope that Levi might recover as he woke up just two days after he was previously considered brain dead. However, the following day, his mother, Kallie, shared that Levi’s scheduled MRI results were not promising.

The news of Levi’s passing comes shortly after Kallie posted on Facebook on Sunday, June 2, stating that after days of  researching, consulting with neurologists and prayer, they made the tough decision of “letting him go.”

“After several sleepless nights, lots of research, multiple conversations with the world’s best neurologists & millions of prayers we are here in the face of our biggest fear,” Kallie wrote. “Levi showed us just enough to buy us time for all of this. We prayed those things were him defying odds & proving to us that he wanted to stay here but we see now he wanted to give us time to find peace with letting him go.”

On June 3, 2024 a friend of the Wright family shared the sad news that Levi has passed away.

Throughout Levi’s journey, family friend Mindy Sue Clark has documented and shared updates on the 3-year-old’s condition on Facebook. In her most recent post, she confirmed that Levi Wright passed away on June 2.

“I cannot even begin to explain how hard the last two weeks have been. From the moment my phone rang the night of his accident, to last night receiving the message that he had to go,” she wrote.

“I don’t want to focus on the bad or sad, even though it feels like someone ripped my heart out and squeezed it right in front of me,” Clark continued. “I want to focus on the many miracles we all got to bear witness to in those 12 days. The response Levi’s story got was absolutely incredible. How many people have told us our names were permanently in their social media search bars waiting for updates. Hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people surrounded our best little buddy, lifted him up in prayer, and threw their loving arms around Levi and his family. We’ve never seen or experienced anything like it. I don’t know that we will ever be able to process it fully.”

“The most perfect three year old there ever was. So perfect we didn’t get to keep him. This baby boy moved mountains the last 12 days. He brought so many people together. In a world so dark, we got to see light at the hands of a child. He’s everything his mom and dad could’ve wanted him to be.”

The post was accompanied by several videos and photos in remembrance of Levi.

We are sending our thoughts and prayers to the Wright family during this difficult time.
