delmer is at the med in mem and tripp is at a top childs burn center in cincinatti. a close friend of delmers told me that the dr said if delmer could make it 24 hrs he would have a good chance of living but i didnt get anymore info than that bc he was on his way to mem to be with delmer and fam. i was informed that there will be a foundation set up at first citizens in their name to help with finances. God bless the mcneil family.

One of the family has said that the doctor says tripps lungs are good except for one spot. They have family in Ohio so hannah is not alone up there. As for delmer at 1230the am nothing has changed and he had a 15%wreck chance of living. Pls continue the prayer.

My thoughts and prayers are with this young family. I went to school with the parents and they are great people. I sure hope that everything turns out okay. You never know when something tragic can happen. Tell the ones you love everyday, you never know when it could be the last. If anyone closer to the family gets an accurate update, please post. They need everyones' prayers!

Delmer is my son's pitching coach, no one can get him to do what Delmer can. This is so tragic Please keep praying. We never know why God does the things he does but he is in control.

<quoted text>You have heard. They need our prayers. I heard that there was a gas leak and the grill caused the house to explode and Tripp had ran in the house to get his dog and his dad went after him.This is a wonderful young family.
Please do not speculate on the reason. Too many rumors spread that way. Wait until the facts come out for sure. I did hear there was a woman with a phone taking video. Is she that blood thirsty? She should be ashamed. What is she going to do, play it back for amusement? Hasn`t this family suffered enough?

Channel five reported at Lunch that the father is in critical but stable condition. The little boy is at a Shriner's hospital in Cincinnati and is stable and is scheduled to have the first of many skin grafts on Thursday. They reported that he will need at least 10 such surgeries. The news is supposed to have further information this evening. too much sadness in Dyer county.

This was posted by Little Delmer's uncle.... Shannon McNeil This is Shannon McNeil ..... Lil Delmers uncle as of midnight nothing has changed with him he is In critical condition with lungs in pretty poor shape but he is a tough young man and he will overcome all ... Tripp was airlifted to Shriners in Cinn, Ohio landed I believe at 1230 the only word we've gotten is that his lungs are In good shape other than one spot on one of them ... My older brother Lawain and his family lives in that city so the family will be all connected in all ways ... Thanks so much for all the prayers and thoughts !! If you know my nephew you know that he is a great father ,husband and just a great young man ... I will try to keep it posted

I was told that the family got out, took their eyes off the little boy for a split second and he had gon back inside the house.
The father went in after him and they had to exit out a window.
Just now was told they only have a 20% chance of recovery.
This is terrible terrible sad.
