5-Year-Old Idaho Boy Fighting For Life After Snowmobile Accident
Man people are praying, thinking of, and hoping for the best right now because a 5-year-old little boy is lying in a bed at Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise fighting for his life.
The young boy was riding a snowmobile with 35-year-old Jesus Gilberto Munoz Jimenez late Sunday afternoon in the Hailey, Idaho area. Munoz Jimenez had the young boy on his lap. Neither were wearing helmets and it only took a second for things to go so wrong.
KTVB reports that the 5-year-old reached out and accidentally grabbed the throttle which sent the two flying off a bank, over a road, and then eventually smashing into the side of another snow bank.
Originally, they were both taken to St. Luke's Wood River Medical Center where Munoz Jimenez's injuries were quickly taken care of because they weren't severe but the little boy immediately had to be transferred by air to Boise where we still have no idea how he's doing yet. At this point, we can only pray and hope for the best. Please keep him and his family in your thoughts.
