“He’s got a long road to recovery. It will include multiple surgeries and weeks stay in the hospital,” posted Irina Pavily, the victim’s aunt. “Please keep this family and my sweet nephew in your prayers, and if you are able to, please donate to help with covering the financial gap.”

Pavily said the parents will likely miss a lot of work to be with their son, while also taking care of their other three children.
