8 YO Boy Lost To Freak Accident While Playing Basketball At Home

Eli Hill, an 8-year-old boy from Corbin, Kentucky, was playing basketball outside when a freak accident claimed his life. He went to get something to stand on in order to dunk the ball in the hoop, but the backboard suddenly hit him and crushed his chest, causing him to die from blunt force trauma.

The police confirmed the incident and the Hill family decided to donate his organs so that someone else can benefit from Eli’s kind heart. The family described Eli as kind and loving with a great knowledge of sports. Eli’s mom, Ashley Hill, said that they were proud of the legacy Eli left behind despite his short life.

However, the family issued a warning through the police department for people not to donate money to the GoFundMe page set up in their name because it wasn’t them who set it. The Better Business Bureau warns about suspicious crowdfunding and advises people to double-check before they donate.

The Hill family has received an outpouring of support and condolences from people who knew Eli. The boy loved baseball more than anything on this planet, and he brought joy wherever he went. His death is a tragic loss, but his legacy will live on through the lives he touched and the organs he donated.
