2 Children Struck by Car During Santa Run Event

Please help to support my friend's two young boys who were hit in a car accident Sunday night. This warmhearted Indian Harbour Beach family lives on South Patrick Drive across from Publix. Three of the six children went to see Santa and the fire truck across the street Sunday night. While crossing the street, two of her sons were suddenly struck by a car. Gregory and Verdell were air lifted to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and are being evaluated. They are currently both in critical condition.

They are students at Ocean Breeze Elementary School. Gregory is 8 years old in the 2nd grade and Verdell is 11 years old in the fifth grade. They also have two other siblings that attend Ocean Breeze. Another sibling attends Hoover Middle School in the 8th grade, and the oldest sibling attends Satellite High School in the ninth  grade. Their grandmother Sharon is a veteran; she and the children's mother Shanel are in Orlando with the boys. They are a very loving and close knit family. They are passionate about the community and have raised their children in Indian Harbour Beach their whole life.

While privacy is greatly appreciated at this time, please pray and keep them in your thoughts. We will update you when we know more.
