A 6-year-old boy Bodie Boring from Texas who was run over by an 18,000-pound bulldozer is now walking on his own just after one week, and his family is calling it “a miracle.”
For Bodie, July 27 is a day he will never forget in his life. The young boy was at a work site with his dad when the freak accident happened. His mother said that he had fractures in his pelvic bone, both lungs bruised, a skull fracture, a blood clot, a brain bleed, and also COVID-19.
Samantha has been updating her social media, sharing photos and videos of his journey to recovery, and thanked everyone who prayed for him. The Lord has been so good to this family, because just one day after the accident, Bodie was making improvements in his health.
It’s easier for me to update this way then to call every person that cares about Bodie…
For those that don’t know…
Samantha wrote, “Bodie told me, ‘Mommy I knew when I saw that blade about to hit me that I was gonna die.’ Honestly, I screamed all the way to Temple begging God not to take my baby, to the point where I had a seizure from the panic. I held onto my little brother, both of us crying saying; He’s gotta be ok, there’s no other option, he’s got to be ok.'”
Samantha has been emphasizing that it has been God all the way in the road to recovery for Bodie and that his existence is proof of it. She wrote, “Folks, I’m gonna tell you one thing… If you don’t believe in God, Bodie is proof right here.”
She posted, “I know for a fact God had a hand in saving my baby. There is no other explanation as to why I’m not leaving this hospital without my baby other then God!! I’m still in shock. God is good all the time,” she wrote.
The post has resulted in the family getting donations, encouraging messages, and prayers for Bodie. On July 31, Samantha shared a video that showed Bodie walking down the hospital hallway using a walker just four days after his accident. “You may be tough but you aren’t walking 5 days after getting ran over by an 18,000 lb Bull Dozer tough. God is Good all the Time #Bodietough #BodieStrong,” she wrote.
“He has amazed me so much,” Samantha told KBTX. “His spirit has been so positive this whole time. Even in his worse pain, he’s just been amazing. This is a miracle, and there’s only one explanation as to why he’s still here and I truly believe that that’s God.”

On Aug. 4, Samantha shared a video of Bodie walking to his hospital bed unassisted. “#bodietough,” she wrote. On the same day, she shared that her little boy was going home the next day. “Although it is scary with him still having the blood clot they said they will still monitor him closely with frequent follow ups & imaging so that gives me a little comfort,” she wrote.
On Friday when they were headed home, she shared a photo of Bodie smiling and standing with his walker. “We are headed home!!!” she wrote.

A GoFundMe page was started by Bodie’s cousin, Magen Boring, for his medical expenses, as of Aug. 8, it has raised $51,390 toward a goal of $60,000. “Above all, please continue lifting them up in prayer!!” Magen wrote on the GoFundMe page.
The family has been greatly appreciative of the support they have received from all over the country and it has helped lift Bodie’s spirits during his recovery. “He’s just also been really amazed to see everybody who cares about him and how many people are praying for him,” Magen said. “There are people in other states that this story has reached, and they’ve even said ‘we’ve heard about this and we’re praying’ and so that’s just been phenomenal.”
Let us keep praying for Bodie and his family as they continue to maneuver through this tough phase in their life. God has seen them through the hardest parts and we believe He will complete His work in their lives.
