Fireball from Lawnmower Burns LDS 12-Year-Old, Leaves Him in Critical Condition

Please join us in praying for Braxton Bigelow and his family.

A 12-year-old Rigby boy is in critical condition at the University of Utah Burn Center following an accident Monday at his home that left him with burns on nearly half of his body, a family member told the Statesman.

“He’s still fighting for his life,” said the boy’s aunt, Jorelle McClellan, who also lives in Rigby.

Braxton Bigelow was helping his dad try to get their riding lawnmower started Monday morning when he was hit by a flaming stream of gasoline that shot out of the machine, McClellan said.

“A big fireball came out, and it ignited my nephew,” McClellan said.
