PAROWAN — Beau Millett, the Parowan teenager who was critically injured in a rollover on June 4, was released from Primary Children’s Medical Center in Salt Lake on Friday and allowed to return home with his parents.
Saturday evening at a park in downtown Parowan, dozens of well-wishers gathered to welcome Beau home, one day shy of the two-month anniversary of his accident.
The 15-year-old was all smiles as he exchanged hugs, high-fives and fist bumps with friends, family members and neighbors, many of whom were wearing “Beau Strong” T-shirts in support.
One attendee brought a baseball-themed cake that read “Welcome home Beau.” Another brought a commemorative Parowan High School blue-and-yellow quilt made using T-shirt logos and photos.
“Thank you, guys,” Millett told those gathered at the pavilion. “It means a lot to me.”
As previously reported in Cedar City News, the teen showed remarkable progress during his recovery, despite having suffered a traumatic brain injury in addition to a broken femur and multiple other serious injuries.
