A Trion area teenager that was injured last week in a tragic accident in North Carolina is making some progress in his recovery at Erlanger Medical Center in Chattanooga according to family members. Brannon Martin received multiple injuries in the accident last week while he and his family were on a spring break vacation in Cherokee County, North Carolina.
Brannon suffered a broken neck and femur and has had several surgeries at Erlanger. Funeral services for Brannon’s two younger siblings were held over the weekend at Dry Valley Baptist Church. The family requests prayer for Brannon as he recovers in the hospital.
