(UPI) — Easton Oliverson, a 12-year-old from Snow Canyon’s Little League World Series team, underwent emergency surgery after he fell out of bed and injured his head in Williamsport, Pa. He remains in an intensive care unit.
Little League International said that the incident occurred early Monday inside a dormitory complex, where the Santa Clara, Utah-based team was staying. Easton’s dad, Jace Oliverson, told KSL.com that his son fell 6 feet, hit a hard floor and fractured his skull and cheekbone.
Oliverson was airlifted to Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital in Mechanicsville, Pa., for surgery.
“I’ve always been a firm believer of prayer and the power that comes with it, and I feel like if people continue to rally around us that he will make a full recovery,” Jace Oliverson told KSL-TV.
