Zack Pittman showing improvement, fundraiser being held for his family

A boy struck by a car last week is showing signs of getting better.

Zack Pittman’s mother says tests show there was no brain stem injury.

That means once he wakes up, he will be able to move his arm and legs.

He is still on a ventilator but doctors took off his neck brace.

Doctors say they are monitoring Zack’s progress moving forward.

There will be a fundraiser held Friday to help Zack’s family.

A BBQ will be held at the Food Giant in Reidland from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

There will be barbecue sandwiches, ribs, and hot dogs for sale.

All the proceeds will go to the Pittman family.
