ST. GEORGE — With two thumbs up, Easton Oliverson has indicated that he is in his own World Series of recovery.

The family of the Snow Canyon Little League all-star baseball player, severely injured after an overnight fall from a dormitory bunk bed at the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa., said Tuesday that the 12-year-old is quickening the usually slow process of coming out of sedation from a traumatic head injury.

"One of his doctors said that everything they have hoped Easton to be able to do in the last 12 hours, he has done and more," the Oliverson family said in a statement provided to St. George News and other media outlets. "We believe that Easton's prayer army is giving him the strength to make these strides."

Meanwhile, on Wednesday morning, the Little League World Series said it has removed the bunk beds in place of single beds.
