Easton Oliverson — the 12-year-old boy who made headlines for sustaining a head injury after he fell off his bunk bed at the Little League World Series — is home and thanking those who have prayed for him.
In a video posted to an Instagram account set up to track Oliverson’s recovery, the Little Leaguer asked people to continue praying for him as he heals from the accident in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

“Hi, everyone, this is Easton,” the young athlete said. “Thank you for all of your prayers. Please keep praying for me as I continue to get better, I know the prayers and blessings have worked, and that heavenly Father is blessing me.”
Oliverson, whose nickname is “Tank,” is part of the Utah-based Snow Canyon Little League team and was slated to play in the Little League World Series until he suffered a skull fracture from falling off his bed Aug. 15, after he arrived in Williamsport for the competition.
The 12-year-old player’s family also published a post thanking the doctors and hospital staff for their work in helping Oliverson recover.
“There are no adequate words that we can use to describe the gratitude that we have for these two men- the doctors that saved Easton’s life,” read a caption on a photo of Oliverson with one of his doctors.
The family echoed Oliverson’s request for continued prayers, noting he “still has a long road ahead.”
As CBN’s Faithwire previously reported, Oliverson’s dad, Jace, said, “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.”
“There is a chance of a full recovery,” he said at the time. “It’s just a matter of how long and the therapy that he’s going to receive. We’re just asking for prayers, continuous prayers.”
Please continue to keep Oliverson and his family in your prayers.
