According to Stephen Guidry, the boys' uncle, both boys suffered severe head trauma, broken bones, and extensive cuts and bruising from the accident. The 7-year-old also suffered severe internal damage to his liver, spleen, and lungs. And the 8-year-old will require an extended period of rehabilitation to recover from his head trauma.

Guidry said both boys remained in the ICU for five days before they were stable enough to be moved to a room at the Children's Hospital.

The boys began their first step to a long-term rehabilitation at a local facility on Thursday, October 13. Guidry said doctors are optimistic for the brothers' full recoveries with time.

Family members have set up a recovery fund for the brothers at BancFirst. You can donate at any BancFirst location to the "Tommy and Tyler Benefit Recovery Fund" if you'd like to help the family.

Family members said they hope the accident will bring changes to the current policies at the school for the safety of all students.
