Darren Doyle, story:
A local youth was critically injured in a sledding accident on Saturday, January 13, 2018 on a family farm on Louisville Road.
According to family members who were in contact with the Edmonson Voice this morning, ten year-old Coleton Parsley crashed into a utility pole while sledding yesterday, where he suffered a fractured skull, multiple broken ribs, a hip fracture, and a torn neck ligament.
After being transported to the hospital yesterday, he was airlifted to Vanderbilt Hospital where he remains in critical condition. He is the son of Brian and Heather Parsley of Smiths Grove and is a fourth grade student at South Edmonson Elementary. Mrs. Parsley is a local APRN and manages A+ Family Healthcare in Brownsville.
In a message sent to the Edmonson Voice, Mrs. Parsley said "Coleton needs God to intervene to get him through this."
The family asked us to share a portion of a message from Mrs. Parsley that she posted on her personal Facebook page:
"I️ know the Lord is in control & our family sure knows the power of prayer. I️ am overwhelmed by the outpouring of love & support that our friends, family & community have shown us. We truly need the good Lord to place his healing touch on Coleton."
The family has asked specifically for prayer in their time of need. Several friends and local churches held private and public prayer this morning at 11am.
"His pressures & vitals are stable at this time. Please continue to pray for God to heal him & to give us strength. Hug your kids tonight," the message said.
We will have updates upon the wishes of the Parsley family.
