Levi had been in critical condition since Tuesday, May 21, when an emergency call was made to Beaver County Sheriff’s Office after Levi drove his toy tractor into a river in Utah. Responders provided immediate life-saving measures at the scene before rushing him to Beaver Valley Hospital. He was then airlifted to Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City for further specialized care.

Levi’s mother, Kallie, shared the incredible news on her Facebook page. In a statement posted just after midnight on Friday, May 24, she announced Levi had woken up from what was previously declared as a state of brain death.

“LEVI WOKE UP! I am shook, we don’t know much but the doctor said it was okay for me to get excited about that and I AM! My baby is so tough!” Kellie wrote.

“He got a little wild so we had to settle him down again but my heart!” she added.

A few hours earlier, Kallie had mentioned that Levi had an MRI scheduled for Friday, which would offer more insights into his condition. The family has not yet shared this information publicly.

Over the past few days, updates on Levi’s condition have been provided by family friend Mindy Sue Clark while Levi’s parents attend to their own needs. She, too, shared the news of Levi’s remarkable recovery.

“MIRACLES!!!!!!!!,” she wrote in response to Kallie’s update. “ETA – because people have been asking for clarification, he opened his eyes and tried to lift his head. The nurse was in the room and they were telling him how much he loves excavators, and wouldn’t you know it, there he was!”

Initially, Levi’s chances of survival seem unlikely. One of the earliest updates provided by Clark indicated that the family had concluded that he wouldn’t recover from him injuries.

“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!”

As of now, there have been no additional updates regarding Levi’s condition. However, for those who wish to offer support, a fundraiser has been established by a family friend.
