Rodeo star’s 3-year-old son dies two weeks after tragic river accident

Levi Wright, the young son of rodeo star Spencer Wright, has died.

The three-year-old died after suffering a traumatic brain injury from a near-drowning incident on May 21.

Levi was hospitalized at a Salt Lake City hospital after accidentally driving a toy tractor into a river near the family’s home on May 21. Local law enforcement found Levi unconscious about a mile downstream.

Although he was initially declared brain dead and not expected to survive, the boy began showing signs of improvement.

“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!” his mother Kallie Wright wrote on Facebook.

Unfortunately, the following day the results of an MRI “wasn’t good.”

“We’re shattered but it is just images that suggest a certain quality of life. Our real teller of all will be what Levi does over the course of a few days,” Kallie shared.

As Levi continued his fight in the hospital, his family and friends continued asking for prayers.

On June 2, Kallie shared devastating news.

“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,” she 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.”

After countless tests, scans, and consultations, the Wright family took Levi off life support.

The following day, June 3, a family friend, Mindy Sue Clark, confirmed on Facebook that Levi had died.

“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. 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. I want to focus on the many miracles we all got to bear witness to in those 12 days.”

“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.”

Our prayers are with the Wright family during this extremely difficult time.
