Leonard, ND (WDAY TV) -- A Leonard boy has had a miraculous recovery from a serious ATV accident in October.

Nine-year old Jared Heuer had six broken ribs and punctured both lungs, after he fell from a four-wheeler at his family's farm. He was in the hospital for more than two weeks, much of that in intensive care.

Though he still has some soreness, Jared is almost completely recovered.

Mathew Heuer, Jared's father, says, "That first night, the doctors weren't very optimistic, at all. They did lose him a couple of times in the surgery. To get him back and not know anything had happened to him is just a miracle."

A spaghetti feed benefit is planned for January 13th at the Leonard Senior Center, to help with Jared's medical bills.
