An online fundraiser has been started for a Mankato boy wo was hospitalized after a gun safe fell on him.
Samuel Carver was unaware the safe was not yet secure and the safe fell on him when he opened the door. The safe weighs 960 pounds according to Bethany Carver, the boys mother.
Samuel’s father used a hydraulic jack to lift the safe as he called 911. The boy wasn’t breathing when the safe was lifted, but Jordan Carver began administering CPR and Samuel began breathing again. A helicopter landed on the family’s property and Samuel was airlifted to Rochester.
A Go Fund Me page says Samuel had two life threatening injuries and was immediately rushed into surgery. More surgeries are expected in the future and the boy is expected to spend a number of weeks or months in the hospital.
