This is crucial information that should have been substantiated before it was reported.

My heart and prayers to everyone that has been and will continue to be affected by this tragedy. May the young man be able to pull through.

The facts WERE straight as told to WOOD TV by the Police. When a news agency wants to get the facts on a death or an accident, who do you think they turn to? The police.

I know WOOD's reporting has been less than stellar as of late, but im afraid to say that the blame for this little snafu lies soley on the Sheriff's Dept this time.

I wouldn't normally stick up for Wood TV as they do jump the gun way to often. The Allegan County Sheriff's Department released the wrong information to the media. So it's not their fault for reporting on what they were given.

I hope that this young many pulls through. Sending out prayers for him and his family.

Evan has to pull through
It's EVAN
He can do anything

I always got in trouble for making him string bracelets in band...but I did anyways because I promised him that they would be finished by the end of the day

And everyone's mad at News 8 because they're worried about him
