This summer on July 19th, he and two other friends, Cedric Garcia and Macagen Moser, were involved in a car accident. Cedric and Macagen had minor injuries, but unfortunately DylanÕs injuries were not. He was immediately life flighted to Sioux Falls. Dylan has come a long way since the accident; he has been fighting through a traumatic brain injury. He went through many procedures including brain surgery and a tracheotomy, which is a breathing tube inserted through the windpipe in his neck. Eventually, after a strong fight he was allowed three visitors of his choice, including one of Vermillion students and a close friends of DylanÕs, Emma Heine. At her visit, Dylan was Òquiet and ill but still managed to socialize minimally.Ó She was Òsure Dylan would eventually return to his goofy and outgoing personality.Ó His classmates cannot wait for Dylan to return to school because they miss his ability to A VHS student sports a “Fight for Dylan” bracelet. make them smile. The Vermillion School District has done what they can to support Dylan, including a volleyball game on September 25 at Vermillion High School. The volleyball team will be wearing and selling “Digs For Dylan” t-shirts. The students and community have been able to purchase “Fight For Dylan” bracelets. The community can also participate in the “Dylan Strong” 5K fun run/walk on September 22nd at the Vermillion High School Track. The Kirkpatrick family has a GoFundMe page for further donations. All of the proceeds from these events will go to Dylan’s family in his fight to recovery. We wish Dylan the best and cannot wait to see him back at school! Not a SADD Story Go Tanagers!
