“Tragic Loss: Grayson Boggs, 6, Succumbs to Lightning Strikes, Suffers Permanent Brain Damage”

The world is mourning the loss of Grayson Boggs, a six-year-old boy from Valley Mills, who died on Friday after succumbing to injuries he sustained during a lightning strike last month. Grayson was in a coma since the incident and battled for survival. Unfortunately, he lost his struggle, and his passing has left the community heartbroken. In this article, we’ll look back at what happened and remember Grayson’s life.

Who was Grayson Boggs?

Grayson Boggs was an energetic and vivacious six-year-old boy with a bright smile. He loved playing with his friends, playing hide-and-seek, and reading books. On May 15, 2023, Grayson’s life changed forever when he was struck by lightning with his father, Matthew Boggs, 34. The incident occurred when they were walking down the driveway after Matthew picked up Grayson from the school bus. The lightning struck Matthew in the body, then moved to Grayson because they were holding hands.

Never in my wildest dreams, did I think I would be here to tell the story of a little boy and his dad being struck by lightning, but here I am. At approximately 5:10, Monday evening, May 15,2023, Matthew, Grayson, and Elijah were walking down the driveway after getting off the bus, when lightning came out of the sky without warning, and entered Matthew’s body and traveled to Grayson, since they were holding hands. It is with a sad heart that I let you know the father, Matthew Boggs, 34, of Valley Mills, TX, did not make it. I am here to beg for your prayers and help. Grayson is a 6 year old little boy who is currently fighting for his life at the Children’s Hospital in Temple, Texas.

He is currently on a vent and is having seizures. The doctors have told us that because he was hit by lightning, their main concerns are his heart, lungs, and kidney damage. The next 72 hours are crucial. Please if you are not in a place to donate, please, please, please share! Thank you for your prayers, kindness, and generosity.
All of the proceeds will go directly to the Boggs family to help with funeral expenses, as well as to support the boys with their future. For anyone that would like to know my connection to this family, Matthew and the boys are my cousins. They are from Indiana, but relocated to Texas several years ago.
