Rodeo superstar Spencer Wright's three-year-old son is declared brain dead ... trends now

The son of rodeo star Spencer Wright has tragically been declared brain dead after driving his toy tractor into a fast-moving river. 

The horror unfolded on Tuesday in Beaver County, Utah, when three-year-old Levi Wright drove into a river and vanished under the water, leading to a desperate scramble to find him. 

Levi's mother reportedly dove in and saved him before he was raced to hospital, but while life-saving measures restored his heartbeat, the boy never regained consciousness and was declared brain dead, reports ABC4

In a heartbreaking statement to Facebook, it was said that Levi's 'sweet little brain was without oxygen too long and there is no coming back from that.'

When Levi drove into the river around 6pm Tuesday, it was reported that the person who called 911 frantically told the dispatcher that they couldn't see him under the fast-moving currents. 

His mother reportedly realized he had sneaked off and ran to the river, and jumped into the currents to save him, with her friend saying she 'was the one who found him, she got him out.' 

A huge response of rescue teams from the Beaver County Sheriff's Office, the Utah Highway Patrol, the Beaver County Search and Rescue team, and Beaver firefighters were quickly on the scene. 

The crews administered life-saving efforts before an ambulance raced him to Beaver County hospital, and he was later airlifted to Salt Lake City via helicopter. 

Wright's close friend and family spokesperson Mindy Sue Clark told ABC4 that he is being cared for at Salt Lake City Hospital, but unless he makes a dramatic recovery, he is not expected to survive.
