Tissue Donation Helps Young Burn Victim Heal From Bike Accident  |  February 5, 2014

photo 1On a warm summer afternoon, Levi, an energetic nine-year-old, ran outside to ride his new dirt bike. Unfortunately, his delight was short-lived: as he went over a jump, Levi fell off the bike and it landed on his leg.

The exhaust pipe on the bike seared into his leg and caused second- and third-degree burns.

I knew something was wrong when he didn’t start screaming,” Levi’s mother, Melissa, said. “I don’t think he felt the full extent of how bad his burns were.”
