Off The Record

The 3-Year-Old Son Of Rodeo Star Spencer Wright Passes Away Two Weeks After A Devastating River Accident

Levi Wright, the little son of popular rodeo performer Spencer Wright has passed away.

Following a near-drowning episode on May 21, the three-year-old suffered a catastrophic brain damage and passed away.

Levi was admitted to a hospital in Salt Lake City on May 21 after he unintentionally ran a toy tractor into a river close to the family’s residence. Levi was discovered unconscious by the local police approximately one mile downstream.

Even though the boy was first deemed brain dead and was not expected to live, he started to show 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.

Regretfully, the MRI results the next day “weren’t good.”

“It’s just pictures that suggest a certain quality of life, but we’re broken.” What Levi does over the next few days will be our true storyteller, according to Kallie.

Prayers were still requested by Levi’s family and friends as he fought on in the hospital.

Kallie broke the heartbreaking news on June 2.

“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.”

Following innumerable examinations, scans, and discussions, Levi’s life support was removed by the Wright family.

On June 3, a family friend named Mindy Sue Clark verified Levi’s passing on Facebook.

“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.”

The Wright family is in our thoughts and prayers during this very trying time.
