11-year-old Boy Praises God for Surviving Being Hit by Semi-Truck
An 11-year-old boy who was struck by a semi-truck has thanked God for helping him survive the ordeal.
Emilio Corrales, known as “Mio,” was riding his bike across the Arkansas River when he was hit by a large truck. The youngster was rushed to Wesley Medical Center with injuries including several torn ligaments, a fractured skull and various cuts and bruises.
Despite the scare, Corrales thanked God for protecting his life.
“I’m thankful to God because I didn’t die,” he told KWCH. “I thought I was going to die when I got hit by a semi-truck.”
Corrales added that he had been incredibly grateful for the support he’s received since the accident. “They prayed and believed in me and I’m just thankful for that,” he said. “I’m ready to go home, I’m happy I get to go home.”
A GoFundMe has been set up for Emilio to “help pay expenses for [the] family.”
Emilio has already undergone surgery on his knee and his shoulder, Oscar Corrales shared in an update on the GoFundMe Page.
According to Oscar, Emilio still has several hurdles to jump as he is “very sore and bruised all over” and cannot hear out of his right ear.
“On a good note,” however, Corrales “is out of [the] ICU,” Oscar shared.
He added, “Thank u everyone for yr donations[,] god bless.”
