Just a few days after someone stole their family's Christmas presents, an LDS family lost their son in a tragic accident. Our prayers are with the Billman family.

Logan Billman was always happy, adventurous, and loved to be outside.

On Monday afternoon, the 14-year-old decided to go on a quick snowmobile ride behind his house above Blackhawk Estates with his cousin and best friend, Wyatt.

“They were on the same machine when they came up over a hill and shot off a steep ravine they didn’t know was there,” James Billman, Wyatt’s father and Logan’s uncle, tells eastidahonews.com. “Wyatt yelled at Logan to jump off and when he jumped the machine hit Logan in the head.”

Logan fell to the ground, and Wyatt landed in front of the snowmobile. He heard it coming toward him and thought he would be run over but somehow the machine only grazed his head before coming to a stop.
