(I am surprised this has not been all over topix, but then again, news rarely is, only gossip...this baby needs serious prayer, due to an accident at Fall Creek Falls, he was hit in the head with a boulder from over 200 feet (that alone is a miracle that he is not dead) This happened last Sat. and he is still unconscious but has been having brain reactions. Please keep him in prayers

The basketball-sized boulder that hit 2-year-old Caleb Brown came from about 240 feet above where he and his family stood near a swimming area at Fall Creek Falls, Van Buren County Chief Deputy Jamie Walling said Friday.

"We went out there and looked, and we could tell what area it came out of," Walling said. "It's rough terrain. It would be risky for someone to get up there."
Police are still investigating whether the boulder fell or was thrown by someone. Investigators have not been able to determine the specific origin of the boulder, just the general area where it came from.
"We're still looking for witnesses who may have seen anything," Walling said. "Only a couple of people have come forward, and they haven't reported hearing or seeing anything suspicious. The only reports I've been given are that a lot of people were out walking the trails that day.
"It's like finding a needle in a haystack. I would hate to think that some kids or anyone got up there and hurt this child, but I just don't know."
Friday evening, Tim Brown, Caleb Brown's father, said the boy was still listed in critical condition.
Earlier in the day, Caleb moved his leg and started to wake a little bit before the doctors sedated him again and took him for an MRI.
"We have to wait until in the morning for the results of the MRI," said Tim Brown, of Antioch.
"He had a seizure during the MRI and he had another one when I was with him earlier. That was scary, but the doctors did say they increased the medication to keep him from having seizures.
"There's no indication as to whether he'll have seizures for the rest of his life or if they'll just stop. He's had severe brain trauma, so that's to be expected."

Facebook page started
In response to media inquiries and phone calls from family and friends, the Browns have set up a Facebook page where they are posting updates on Caleb's condition. It's listed under Caleb Timothy Brown.
Although the page went up just under a week ago, it already has over 3,000 supporters.

"It's been inspirational and beautiful to see so many people keep up with how he's doing," said Tim Brown.

"We're so grateful and so thankful to everybody, from the people who helped get him up the trail, to the hospital staff to all the people who are praying now. We're just grateful."
Tim Brown, 32, is a minister at Whites Creek Church of Christ.
On the Facebook page Friday evening, the family posted that there's still an issue of a piece of bone in Caleb's brain, and doctors want to check the bone structure of his neck.
Tim Brown said the pneumonia is getting better and the doctors are encouraged by the boy's brain function in regulating heart and kidney function and keeping the pressure under control in the cranium.
"If I look at the big picture over the last 24 hours, I'm very hopeful," he said.
Caleb Brown has been unconscious since being hit in the head at about 5 p.m. on Saturday.
Brown, his wife, Tiffany, Caleb and Caleb's 4-year-old brother went to Fall Creek Falls on a camping trip. The couple has another son, 7 months old, who did not make the trip.

you are full of bull crap!!!!!!!!! he is still in critical care and it was NOT a rock, it was a 25 pound boulder, I would hardly say that is a rock, and it has brain damage, and a bone in his brain,he has not come to, only for a sec to push the dr's hand away, he still has a LONG WAY TO GO... have some compassion, you surely can not be that low!

I don't recall screaming at you, BUT I AM NOW!!!! Let me tell you something, you can praise allie till your face turns blue, he has no power to do anything. We are calling on the name of JESUS and he is getting better. If you have no more respect for a two year old baby, to say stupid stuff like that, you stay off my thread!!!!! If you have children, I feel sorry for them...you better show a lil respect, because with the attitude you have, you have a hard rude awakeining, and maybe you will see allie there

It must be a couple of heartless kids that think they are being cute by making these comments. Lets just hope when they have a family, nothing tragic happens to their child.

To Lies: no such thing as wasted prayer time.
To Tom: God doesn't plan tragic events.

You are an absolute nutcase! ANYONE can go type in WKRN, WSMV, WTVF (ALL NEWS CHANNELS) and find the story!Don't take my word for it, go to your local tv channels on teh pc, ANYONE THAT DOUBTS OR JUST WANTS TO BE A SMART BUTT! That is where I got this insert, but hey, I guess ALL of our local news channels are scammers too, GET OVER IT!!! It happened just like it says, go to your news channels, it was on tv and obviously your husband isnb't around locally, or maybe the ones that were there got the job done, I know for a fact by listening to the scanner that somtimes they have enough helpers and call off the rest.....and anyways, they are asking for PRAYERS!!!!!!!!!! How much does PRAYERS cost???????

It was at Fall Creek Falls, yes it was on the news on T.V. The Expositor probably didn't cover it because, it happened in another county, and the family was not from here. Just because your husband volunteers for the rescue squad doesn't mean crap. Fall Creek Falls idiot. The family is asking for prayers, not money. I guess sympathy and compassion are not your strong points, huh.

Its no wonder why people think the end is coming soon. God destroyed cities and this evil world once for much less than what goes on now. For anyone to say such hurtful, uncompassionable things about a toddler is nothing but evil. How can you live with yourself knowing you pushed sent. This family needs prayer, as a mother of a 2yr old I couldn't imagine what this family is going through. My prayers are with you. God will help you through this tragic incident
