McKinney boy run over while playing at a friend's house

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS - A 6-year-old boy from McKinney is in critical condition after being run over by a car in a neighbor's driveway.

McKinney police confirmed Graham "Hopper" Kormylo was rushed to Children's Medical Center last Monday.

According to a website with updates from family, he had been playing outside with some neighborhood friends and apparently laid down under some towels the driveway to scare them.

But, their mother drove up, didn't see him and rolled over his head with the front wheel of her SUV. He suffered extensive skull and facial fractures and multiple contusions on his brain, the website says.

The neighbor immediately stopped to help.

Family members said Graham remains sedated and on a ventilator in the intensive care unit, but has moved his arms and legs and sometimes squeezes his dad's hand.

An MRI also showed promising results.

"My little Graham pulled himself out from under an SUV after it ran over his skull, and that big granite Kormylo Dome of his protected all of his blood vessels. It is an absolute miracle," wrote Lindsey Roth Kormylo, his mother.

If his progress continues, doctors said he will likely need several reconstructive surgeries and could be in the hospital for two to six months.

"Thank you all for your prayers, love, donations, and support. I know that his recovery is going as well as it is because of all of you and your prayers. And my family is staying strong and getting through this because of you and the blessings that God is sending our way on your behalf. Keep the prayers coming for Graham -he is a fighter but still as a long road ahead," his mother wrote.
