Torianto “Junior” Brinson, who was 15 years old at the time, was involved in a road accident that occurred close to his house in Missouri City, Texas, a year ago. His mother, La’Kisha Brinson, received a call that no mother would ever want to receive.
La’Kisha stated that her daughter contacted her one minute after the event took place and that she was crying uncontrollably.
“I had no choice but to jump out of the vehicle and start running when I spotted him lying there as it was said that there were four different emergency services working on him, but he did not react, he was not breathing, and he was not moving.”
La’Kisha recalled. “They informed us that he was gone, and there was nothing they could do.”
She started praying for Torianto and requested her family to join her in praying for him, but then the unthinkable occurred.
She said, “I was holding his hand, and I prayed, and I told him, ‘Junior, I need you!’ After one minute had passed, I saw he had moved his hand”.
This indicator was sufficient to get him into emergency surgery; nevertheless, it was only the beginning of a long road to recovery since he had suffered brain damage and needed to be monitored continually after the operation.
Even though Torianto missed a whole year of middle school, he will be able to graduate with the rest of his class since he completed all of his high school requirements during that time. Even playing basketball is back on his schedule.
