People from the Lugoff community and beyond are contributing to the ongoing miracle named Brayden who survived a non-fatal drowning in a family pool on Jan. 23. Brayden, who was actually in cardiac arrest, managed to be resuscitated but remained comatose. Four days later, his parents, Kelley and Zach, were told he might never wake up and, if he did, would never walk again. (At the request of Brayden’s family, the C-I is not using their last names.) During the next seven days he not only woke up and was able to be taken off a ventilator, but managed to stand on his own.
