11-year-old South Beloit boy cleared to leave hospital, mom says
MADISON, Wis. (WIFR) - An 11-year-old boy, who was hit by a vehicle as he stepped off a school bus, is home after being released from the hospital on Thursday.
“He just got cleared to go home,” Ashley Bourgord tells 23 News. “Just waiting for his walker and his discharge.”
Brenden Bourgord suffered a ruptured diaphragm, broken femur and lacerated spleen, which had to be removed, after being hit May 25.
Tuesday was the first day Brenden had food since the crash. His medical team at American Family Children’s Hospital in Madison also removed his draining tube.
“It’s a miracle,” Ashley says of her son’s recovery. “Thankfully, God and his guardian angels had our backs.”
Though Brenden has a long recovery ahead, his family is still waiting for answers from investigators.
According to South Beloit police, the investigation is ongoing and no one is charged in the case.
