Giocatore della Little League World Series in condizioni critiche dopo essere caduto da un letto a castello

A 12-year-old player in the Little League World Series is in critical condition after falling from a bunk bed at the playersdormitory in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, la sua squadra dice alla CNN.

Easton Oliverson of Utah’s Snow Canyon Little League suffered a fractured skull from the fall, his team said. He is being treated at Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital in Danville, Pennsylvania, according to a hospital spokesperson.
The injury happened early Monday morning, according to a statement from Little League International. St. George News reports Oliverson fell out of his bed in his sleep in the middle of the night, citing a source within the team.
      Oliverson was airlifted to the local children’s hospital, where he underwent surgery to stop the bleeding and stabilize him, secondo an Instagram account set-up to provide updates on his condition. He was then put into a medically induced coma, his team said.
        Oliverson’s father Jace, who is an assistant coach on his son’s team, ha detto in una dichiarazione, “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.
          Oliverson’s doctors began weening him off of painkillers and scaling back his oxygen with positive results, the Instagram account reported Tuesday afternoon, adding that a neurosurgeon told the family that the boy’s CT scan waslooking great.
          The account also said Oliverson was able to respond physically when one of his friends spoke to him on the phone.
          He told Easton to put his thumb up – e lo ha fatto! His friend then told him to put his other thumb upand he did that as well! We are so grateful for these little miracles,” il post diceva.
          As of the afternoon of Tuesday, agosto 16, Little League officials spoke with Easton’s family and were pleased to hear that his medical team remains encouraged by his progress,” Little League International said in a statement. “At the request of his family, Little League International encourages all to join us in keeping the Snow Canyon Little League player and his family in our thoughts and prayers, as we wish for a full and complete recovery.
            The organization said it would use all available resources tosupport the player, la sua famiglia, and his coaches and teammates, as we navigate this unfortunate situation.
            Oliverson’s Snow Canyon Little League team is scheduled to play its first game of the Little League World Series Friday afternoon. Snow Canyon is the first team from Utah to make it to the series in the 75-year history of the tournament.
