SUGARCREEK (WJER) - Family friends have delivered a tragic update on the young Sugarcreek boy who was severely injured in a garage door accident. 

Jason Corley of Dover says Miciah Yoder passed away late Thursday morning at Akron Children’s Hospital, where he had been since the September 9th incident. Corley shared the unfortunate news in a tearful social media video.

“I was truly hoping that I wouldn’t have to make this update but Miciah is gone. He is now in heaven.”

Corley has said they were unsure what caused the neighbor’s garage door to fall on Miciah, pinning him down across the neck and upper torso area.

An online go fund me account to help the family with expenses has now raised over $6,400.
