Holton boy starts speaking again after brain injury

Local News

HOLTON, Kan. (KSNT) – Kyran Folsom, a 13-year-old boy who was fighting for his life following a brain injury sustained in a pellet gun accident, has started speaking again, for the first time in weeks.

Kyran’s mother, Desity Folsom said he is now suffering from a bacterial infection from an epidural but they’re hoping he recovers soon

“You can start to hear the crackle in his voice,” she said.

After he was life-flighted from Holton to Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City in December, Kyran underwent multiple surgeries to remove part of his brain and skull and was put in a medically-induced coma for ten days.

The next step is rehabilitation, which will cost their family thousands of dollars.
