6-year-old hospitalized with ATV accident injuries has died, family “thankful for so much love”

The family of the 6-year-old boy killed in an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) accident has said they are thankful for the outpour of love and support they’ve received.

According to reports, 6-year-old Giancarlo Guerrero, of Hidalgo County, Texas, passed away last night just before midnight.

The youngster was rushed to Doctor’s Hospital at Renaissance (DHR) on August 24 after being involved in an accident. Aunt Jovanni Guerrero said he suffered major injuries.

“His mom had a broken ankle, some cuts on her face,” Jovanni explained.

“There was little boy who had his pelvis broken, as well as a little girl broke her nose and her lip, Giancarlo was the one who was most injured of all. He had a cut on his throat, and he had some brain damage done on the accident, where he fell off.”

The boy’s mom, Priscilla Chapa, said that the idea her son might make a recovery had been quickly ruled out.

“Since the get-go, they’ve kind of just had us like ‘he’s stable, he’s good, it’s going to be a long recovery, but you know he’s stable,” she said.

“Then two days later they said ‘well we’re not seeing too much activity’ and it reached a point where he was brain dead to them.”

Priscilla wanted to have him transferred to another hospital for a second opinion, but said that DHR denied that. On September 10, she went to court, asking them to allow Chapa to move to another hospital and issue a restraining order on the hospital which would force them to provide medical care for her son over the course of the court case.

DHR agreed to provide Giancarlo with care until September 25, which the family was able to get extended to September 30.

As per reports, Mona Chapa, a relative, confirmed yesterday that Giancarlo had passed away.

“We are thankful for so much love towards Gian,” she said. “To keep praying for Gian’s mom Priscilla, to keep us all in your prayers and to remember Gian for the little warrior he was.”

Such a tragic story. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Giancarlo Guerrero. Rest in peace, little man.
