A 34-year-old father tragically died and his 6-year-old son was left fighting for life after they were struck by lighting while walking back from a bus stop in Texas.
According to reports, dad Matthew Boggs was walking his two sons Elijah and Grayson when the incident occurred on May 15.
In a GoFundMe page set up for the family, a relative wrote that ‘lightning came out of the sky without warning’ and struck the father.
An obituary for Matthew said that Grayson, 6, was holding his father’s hand when the lighting struck him.
11-year-old Elijah told news station KWTX: “I was really scared. I rolled Grayson over and he was kind of smiling a little bit. I thought they were just joking, but when I rolled my dad over the middle of his head was bleeding and his face was already purple.”
Grayson was given CPR and rushed to the McClane Children’s Hospital Baylor Scott and White where he is ‘fighting for his life.’
Matthew’s heartbroken mother, Angela Boggs, said her son is now in God’s ‘healing arms.’
In an update on the fundraising page, it reveals that Grayson is also receiving treatment for pneumonia. The family was also told that there is a possibility he could have brain damage.
Grandmother Angela is now focused on her grandkids. “I always took care of (Matthew= because he was the one that God gave to me. Now my responsibility is to take care of my grandbabies.”
Speaking of Grayson, she continued: “He’s a rambunctious little boy. He is always, always on the move playing. He goes, ‘Rawww strong.’”
More than $66,000 has been raised for the family.
