My 15yr old nephew, Mitchell, was in a bad car wreck. He was in a car with 4 other boys, coming from a lacrosse practice. One boy lived on life support for a short time. They held his funeral services today. Mitchell's 12th vertebrae was crushed. They went in on Friday and put a cage around it in hopes that it will heal. He is in a great deal of pain and there is a risk of infection. He'll be in the hospital for six weeks and will have a long road to recovery, but is lucky to be alive. His parents are thankful for that.
