Rodeo star Spencer Wright’s three-year-old son was considered brain dead and beyond saving. Now he has miraculously woken up. 

It’s nothing short of a miracle: Levi, the three-year-old son of rodeo star Spencer Wright, has woken up after being considered brain dead and beyond saving days earlier. The three-year-old drove his toy tractor into a river and had an accident.

“Levi woke up!” Wright’s wife Kallie posted happily on Facebook. “I’m shocked, we don’t know much yet, but the doctor said it’s okay if I’m happy and I’m doing that. My baby is so strong,” she added.

According to the New York Post, the hopeful update on Levi’s condition came less than two days after the Wrights thought they had lost him. They had originally planned to stop treatment and keep him close to them until his last breath on Earth. “Levi’s heart beats on its own, he has the will to breathe, but his sweet little brain has been without oxygen for too long and there is no turning back,” an earlier update said.

But they changed their plans on the advice of a new doctor who “insisted that we give him more time,” family spokeswoman Mindy Sue Clark said Wednesday. “We have time for a miracle,” the family said before Levi woke up – a miracle that apparently happened when he woke up. 

“Brain death” refers to the complete and irreversible loss of all functions of the cerebrum, cerebellum and brainstem. This condition is considered death of the individual, although artificial respiration and other life-sustaining measures can temporarily maintain some body functions. Brain death is of great medical, ethical and legal importance because, among other things, it is the prerequisite for the removal of organs for transplantation.
