Aug 22, 2022

The father of a Utah Little Leaguer who suffered a serious head injury when he fell from the top bunk in the dorms in Pennsylvania while he was asleep said Sunday "there is a chance" his son makes a full recovery.

Jace Oliverson told The Associated Press his 12-year-old son Easton was expected to fly back to Utah and that he will remain in a hospital there. Easton Oliverson, a pitcher and outfielder for the Snow Canyon team, suffered the injury last week.

"I'm just grateful that he's still alive, because I was pretty much told he had a 0% chance to live. We feel very fortunate," Jace Oliverson said.
