12-year-old Little League World Series player suffers severe head injury after falling from bunk bed in dorm

A 12-year-old Little Leaguer is currently in the hospital recovering from emergency brain surgery after falling from the top bunk bed while he slept at a Williamsport, Pennsylvania dormitory with his Snow Canyon teammates prior to the team’s first game in the Little League World Series.

Easton Oliverson suffered severe head trauma and was placed in a medically induced coma; however, his doctors and family are optimistic that the 12-year-old will recover.

Early Monday morning Easton suddenly fell out of the top bunk bed in the dorm where he and his teammates from Utah were staying.

“Just a really simple thing — something that we’ve all probably done is fall off the bed,” Spencer Beck, Easton’s uncle, told The Salt Lake Tribune. “But he hit his pretty hard, it sounds like.”

A teammate heard the fall, woke up, and alerted others. Easton, who pitches and plays outfield for the Snow Canyon Little League team, was flown to a children’s hospital where he underwent emergency brain surgery.

He was then placed in a medically induced coma.

“There was a lot of blood in his brain and a lot of pressure being caused. He had what was called an epidural hematoma. He fractured his skull and in the meantime punctured an artery outside the brain which caused the bleeding,” the boy’s father and team’s assistant coach Jace said in a statement.

On Tuesday Easton was already showing incredible progress.

He was able to respond when a friend spoke to him on the phone, and doctors were able to begin weening him off painkillers.

His breathing tube was also removed, which his family commented was a “big step.”
While he remains in the hospital, his prognosis looks positive as his family shared on an Instagram account that the results from a recent MRI scan “came out very promising.”

Easton’s team, the first team from Utah to make it to the Little League World Series, is scheduled to play their first game Friday.

As Easton continues to recover, his family has one request: keep praying.

“Easton keeps proving himself to be the fighter we have always known he is!!” the Oliverson family said in a statement. “The prayers are working! Please keep them coming. We love you all

My heart goes out to Easton, his family, and his team. I hope he continues to heal and recover.

Please join me in saying a prayer for Easton
